I'm delighted to announce that this week HOT, in conjunction with American Red Cross, British Red Cross and Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors without Borders UK are launching the Missing Maps Project. The main goal of the project is to map the most vulnerable places in the world, in order that international and local NGOs and individuals can use the maps and data to better respond to crises affecting the areas.
