The second annual White House Mapathon is today! Last year was a blast, and we are so excited to celebrate open mapping in government. Mikel will be there creating map data and sharing power mapping moves from our data team.

You can take part! Tune in for the live kick off at 1pm ET, and join in the mapping from wherever you are. Contribute to mapping projects for malaria prevention in Mozambique with the Peace Corps and USAID, and remote locations in the USA with the Census Bureau Missing America project.

If you need a primer, brush up your mapping skills with our new mapping guides. Follow and post on Twitter with #WHMapathon. Have a great mapathon!
