A Mapathon is a coordinated mapping event. It is often held inside (armchair mapping) but can also be an outside or combined activity.


US Mapathons

OpenStreetMap US calls quarterly mapathons, held in various cities on the same weekend, all focused on improving the US map (more on mapathons in the US):

The hashtag #mapathon (previously #editathon) is used on every changeset committed during a Mapathon event. This way, we can keep track of how much progress was made.
