Global peace needs global contribution. The contribution of everybody is important for peace.

United Nations helps countries torn by conflict create conditions for lasting peace. Peacekeeping, peacebuilding and conflict prevention activities are the main objectives of our mapping activities. There is enormous potential for new technologies to improve the effectiveness of UN peacekeeping missions, as they respond to an ever-growing list of tasks in increasingly complex field environments. Your help can make the difference. Become a UN Mapper.


How to join us

Our activities are accessible and open for participation for anyone who wants to contribute towards the project. The project aims to overcome the problems of lack of topographic data in the field mission areas for delivering accurate and up-to-date base information, for the missions peacekeeping, to the users and stakeholders.

Currently we are mapping in Somalia (UNSOS), Central African Republic (MINUSCA) and Democratic Republic of Congo (MONUSCO).

To become a UN Mapper you can join our local events or participate remotely by mapping in the tasks released on the HOT Tasking Manager. Follow UN Mappers on Eventbrite to stay updated.
