To All,

MapGive along with the U.S. State Department’s South American Regional
Environmental Office will be putting together a 3-day mapping workshop in
Piura, Peru to take place 10-12 of February. We are teaming up with Mapbox
as they will be supporting the workshop with two instructors from Mapbox
Peru. Participants of the workshop will include the local government,
INDECI (Institute of National Civil Defense), and the local community.

The event will kick-off with a Mapathon on 10 Feb in the afternoon. We have
already initiated contact with OSM Peru. We wanted to reach out to the
community and see if there are any additional OSM/HOT contacts in Peru that
would be interested in either helping to remotely trace during the Mapathon
or are in Piura and would be interested in participating or potentially
helping to train local participants how to field map in OSM.

This is the area that we will be mapping.


Feel free to reach out to us directly off list if you are interested.
