You must have all of your own gear. Contact Abe.Solberg@mail.mcgill.ca for more information.

 

The Open Mapping Group of McGill (OMG McGill) 
OMGMcGill is a ~*brand new group*~ on campus calling all students, profs, and staff interested in open mapping for humanitarian purposes! (Open mapping is mapmaking online using freely-accessible data).
