Map Your World Mapathon

Data plays a crucial role in today’s society, and over 80% of it has a location connection. While there is a huge amount of public data available, data rendering and display is still a challenge. Large data sets typically require time and expertise to process and interpret, making it nearly impossible for the majority of people to make sense of it.

HERE has developed a service to help overcome this challenge. With HERE XYZ you can easily visualize your geospatial data on a map and make sense of it by using images, colour codes, and shapes. Simply upload your own or a public geospatial dataset and start designing your map!

Challenge yourself on topics like; Mobility, Sustainability, Cities & Society, Economics & Industry, Health, Sports & Activities, Nature & Environment or a topic of your choice.

Your challenge is to describe briefly what information you would like to visualize on the future map that could be beneficial for you, your community, the environment or our society at large. Once you are selected, you’ll be guided by mentors to generate a map(s) using XYZ Studio.


The winning projects will receive up to $10,000 in cash prizes as listed below;

  • First place: $10,000
  • Second place: $5,000
  • Third place: $2,500
  • Fourth to Tenth place: $200
  • Audience prize: $1,000


  • The Map your world Mapathon is open to anyone!
  • Whether you’re a newcomer who wants to visualize a topic that matters to you, a data expert creating a map for your project or a developer leveraging a map for your application, this challenge is for you.
