HKN Mapathon

From April 12th to April 18th HKN will be hosting our first ever virtual Map-A-Thon. We will be working to create maps of the Aklan province in the Philippines, that assist humanitarian aid organizations like the red cross with disaster preparedness and response. Over the week our goal is to contribute 100 mapped satellite tiles. Additionally, HKN will be awarding Prizes to our top mappers for the week.
