Greetings everyone,

 

It has been an incredible collective effort to conduct this massive mapping
campaign to help end malaria.  If you have not seen it yet, check out
Mapbox's blog and graphics of the work done so far:
https://www.mapbox.com/blog/world-malaria-day/ 

 

On Tuesday, World Malaria Day, about 360 mappers came together for this
campaign and ended up tracing over 94,000 buildings in Zimbabwe. I can't say
"Wow, Thank You!" enough. 

 

Although World Malaria Day is over, the disease is not, and neither is the
mapping. Please continue to spread the word and share the link directly to
the campaign on the Tasking Manager: http://bit.ly/2miQUyZ - or for more
information, the project page:

For the youthmappers chapters, there will be one more round of the Mapping
To End Malaria Challenge which will run May 1 - June 4; more info and
registration can be found here:

enge 

 

For those chapters currently competing in round 2, I just looked at
preliminary stats and there is literally a one(1) building difference
between two contenders; with several others on their heels for 2nd and 3rd
place. A good push this weekend could really make the difference for a
handful of teams.

 

Thank you everyone for supporting this campaign and Happy Mapping!
