About HOT
Free, up-to-date maps are a critical resource when relief organizations are responding to disasters, public health emergencies, and political crises. The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) is a global NGO that creates and provides those maps through open source technology and open data.

About Missing Maps
Many of the poorest and most vulnerable places in the world do not exist on any map. The Missing Maps project is a collaborative project founded by HOT alongside the American Red Cross, British Red Cross, and Medicins Sans Frontieres which works to put these places onto the map before disasters occur. NGOs and local communities use the maps and data to plan disaster risk reduction and response activities that save lives and bolster resilience. To date more than 10,000 Missing Maps volunteers have worked to put nearly 20 million people on the map.
