The developer world has been utilising Hackathon’s for a number of years to rapidly create software for a common, often charitable purpose. The BCS Mapathon adopts the same principles but rather than software our output will be high quality cartographic products that reveal previously unseen patterns in the data or maps the charity can use for marketing purposes.

The Mission

Working with data provided by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission teams or individuals from the cartographic community are invited to gather together to share their ideas, skills and experience for the benefit of others. Each team will have an opportunity to present their work. A panel of judges will review the projects and award prizes.
