  1. External Projects: MAPATHON – KERALAM

The termMapathon indicate a coordinated mapping event where the public is invited to make online map improvements in their local area to improve coverage and to help disaster risk assessment and energy management.Mapathons use an online site for storing map data, such as OpenStreetMap. Google Maps was also an option until 2017. A Mapathon is organized by a respective organization or a non-profit organisation or local government.Mapathons are often held inside (armchair mapping) in a room with strong Wi-Fi for simultaneous access, assisted by satellite imagery. It can also be an outside activity with online simultaneous map editing assisted by global positioning system trackers on mobile devices. Mapathon Keralam is being implemented by Kerala State IT Mission.  Through the Mapathon Keralam, it is aimed to create extensive local maps of Kerala including physical infrastructure, natural resources and other information that are useful for planning and other developments.

A group of 35 students from third semester and fifth semester of Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering departments were selected for the project. They were divided in to 7 groups. Data were collected and entered using mobile applications. It was validated and corrected after discussing with the respective ward members and then was tabulated and plotted for each ward. Certificates were issued to the group members by The Secretary, Valanchery Municipality.
