Do you care about climate change? Want to help people affected by recent natural disasters, environmental impacts, and other humanitarian issues? Does the word Bruin instantly ruin your day? If you answered yes, then join in this year's humanitarian USC vs UCLA Map-a-thon challenge in celebration of 2019 GIS Day! Battle of the Maps.
