In collaboration with the American Red Cross and the Missing Maps Project, Maxar conducted a company-wide mapathon with the aim of updating map data in Myanmar before the monsoon season. Areas mapped include the Ayeyarwady Delta region, which regularly experiences flooding. With Maxar’s high-resolution satellite imagery, humanitarian organisations such as the Myanmar Red Cross Society are able to make more informed decisions, such that future disaster responses can be made more efficient.
