River Thames Mapathon

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 18th Jan 2017

Join us for a night of mapping the River Thames to help artists and scientists understand the impact of waste plastics on aquatic environments and get the public engaged. A richer map of the Thames beaches will help KCL artist in residence Maria Arceo to identify where she can collect waste plastics in her year long campaign to collect rubbish along the entire tidal Thames. This feeds into Maria's project 'Thames Memory & the Exploration of Future Dust' - for more information about the project visit http://www.thamesplastic.com. 
Throughout the evening there will be talks from a range of experts about the creative and scientific aspects of the project, who will also explain how you can get involved further. These will include partners from Thames 21, the Thames Estuary Partnership and King's College London. No previous mapathon experience is required - the KCL Humanitarian Mappers team will be on hand to help you develop the GIS skills required to contribute to OpenStreetMap.
Please bring a laptop and if you have one, a computer mouse. Pizza and drinks will be provided.
For any quesitons, please contact faith.taylor@kcl.ac.uk

Cost: Free of Charge
