Map of Magnitude 7.3 earthquake 18 miles from Halabja, Iraq, Nov. 12, 1:18 pm

Help those impacted by the recent earthquake on the Iran/Iraq border!

A global community of mappers are using satellite imagery to tag areas where there is visible destruction or flooding, and working to improve maps of remote areas so first responders can get to those in need. Join us at the Scholars' Commons IQ-Wall to learn how to use Tomnod  and Humanitarian OpenStreetMap while helping those in need.

Pop in for a few minutes, or stay for the full two hours! This event is open to all, and no experience is needed. Please bring your laptop if possible.​
