Contribute your time to help with relief efforts on the ground in Puerto Rico by participating in this open data editathon using Open Street Map Tasking Manager and Crowd Rescue.

The Red Cross in Puerto Rico has requested geospatial data to help with their relief operations on the island. We will map from pre-event imagery to give them an operating picture of the island before the hurricane made impact. Crowd Rescue is asking for social media and real time updates for conditions on the ground. Training will be provided.

No mapping experience or knowledge of local terrain is necessary, though it is helpful. Come at any time during the open hours. RSVP to mr1133@newark.rutgers.edu.
