In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic - the largest public health crisis of the 21st century so far - there was uncertainty about how mapping could be used to support response efforts.

Supported by the Humanitarian-to-Humanitarian Network (H2H), HOT coordinated the most extensive disaster activation in its history. Over the course of 2020, the response grew into a network of teams, online volunteers, national governments, and local communities supporting mapping responses around the world. HOT’s role in this response covered a wide range of activities, including managing remote mapping projects worldwide, validating data quality, engaging in humanitarian outreach, GIS & IM support and training, data analysis and visualization, and web map creation.
