Maps and navigation continue to pose a big challenge to undermapped regions. That’s why Mapillary and the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) are launching #map2020 for the second year in a row. Together, we will work towards better maps and improved road safety in the places where it’s needed the most.Submit your project
#map2020 encourages local mapping groups to use Mapillary and OpenStreetMap to map navigation issues in undermapped regions. Road accidents take some 1.35 million lives every year, with 93% of global road fatalities occurring in low- and middle-income countries—even though these nations only have 60% of the world’s vehicles. By improving the map, we can make a dent in one of the biggest challenges that low- and middle-income countries face.
