During this day we will explore the role of cartography before, during and after a crisis. In the morning the presentations will be held in english and focus on humanitarian mapping and the role of the HDX in an international setting. In the afternoon, presentations will be in dutch and focus mainly on the dutch situation and on the mapping of desasters in the past.

The goal of the Map Challenge is to visualize the Rohingya refugee crisis in the most creative, innovative, but purposeful way with data published on the HDX. The format can be anything, for example a printed poster, an interactive web page or a story board.
You can use the following datasets:
- one of more of these ISCG datasets
- cannot find what you’re looking for? Take a look at all datasets about the Rohingya crisis
Rules of the game…
- You can only use the data referenced above
- Your visualization is allowed to be used on this website
- In case of a digital product; it needs to be usable without purchasing any license
- In case of a printed poster, the maximum permitted paper size is A3
How can I win?
Glad you asked! Your fellow Cartodag participants can vote by means of putting stickers on (representations) of the visualizations. Every participant is allowed three choices. The visualization with the most stickers wins!
How do I submit my entry?
You can submit your entry by filling out this form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org before March 12, 2018. In case of a to be printed poster, please include a PDF of the to be printed A3 poster.
