Map with Us

Take action by supporting UN peacekeeping missions with your OpenStreetMap mapping. Every single edit makes a difference. Choose the project you like best and contribute topographical data such as settlements, buildings, roads or waterways. In each project you will find a set of instructions on which features to map. The data entered will be processed to produce the topographic maps that peacekeepers use during their operations. In addition, all data will be publicly available and can be used by actors on the ground, such as local communities and NGOs.



Take part in our events! Get to know our team and community members. Throughout the year we organise training events and mapathons, both locally and remotely, thatare open to everyone. Whether you are a user interested in getting started or an advanced mapper, we look forward to seeing you. Together we will see not only how to make the first edits to OSM but also how to use the most advanced tools for mapping topographic features. Keep an eye out for upcoming events in the map!
