HOT has mobilized a revolution in humanitarian mapping - putting the most vulnerable people on the map in times of crisis and supporting local communities to add themselves to the map. Now the question is, how do we make our mapping better, more inclusive and representative, and our data more useful for those who need it to improve lives?
For the 2019 HOT Summit, we will be talking about how our community can improve humanitarian mapping. We’ll share the latest technology being used to improve the ease, accessibility and quality of our mapping, the communities who are making mapping more gender and geographically inclusive, and of course, how we can produce the best quality map data for humanitarian and development use.
Some sessions of particular interest include:
