#map2020 for better maps in undermapped regions

In Spring 2019, Mapillary and Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) invited teams to use street-level imagery to accelerate critical map data collection for humanitarian challenges. The teams were working towards a chance to be awarded a fully-funded trip to the HOT Summit in Heidelberg, Germany, to present the results in front of the international humanitarian mapping community.

Launching #map2020

The name 2020 comes from the area between 20ºN and 20ºS of the equator which accounts for a significant portion of the land where we are missing maps. 2020 also represents the year which provides us with a milestone to work towards with the objective being extensive imagery and map data in a few of these locations around the world.
