The MapUganda mapathon was organized by MapUganda at Hive Colab. The theme of the mapathon was to map all village locations of all participants, specifically mapping roads and buildings. All these changes and edits are available on OpenStreetMap.

We had a physical attendance of 19 people including the facilitators Deogratius and Hillary. We also had people joining in remotely from different locations across the country for the mapathon. Other mappers joined in during the day even after the event was done.

The event had a Map Challenge organized by Tinah which involved putting together a map maze.
