Missing Maps is an initiative begun by the American Red Cross, British Red Cross, Médecins Sans Frontières, Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team—a nonprofit launched in 2010 to support volunteers working on OpenStreetMap for humanitarian mapping. The project's goal is to "map out vulnerable areas before a disaster occurs to reduce risk and better speed recovery." Better maps provide humanitarian workers and the communities themselves with the tools they need to be effective. In [November 2016](https://www.missingmaps.org/blog/2016/11/16/facebook/), Facebook began collaborating with Missing Maps to provide the organization with faster and more efficient ways for people to volunteer mapping time. It also provided its own [highly detailed maps](https://tech.fb.com/ai-powered-maps-help-vaccination-campaigns/) in places such as Malawi. These donations were generated using teams of data scientists and artificial intelligence researchers.
