Mappery For the love of maps

Sulawesi election hoarding

Ant Scott sent us this pic from a recent MapAction deployment

“I came across this one while out on a damage assessment visit yesterday for MapAction following the recent Sulawesi earthquake. I don’t remember seeing maps on election posters before, let alone with classes and a legend, showing (I believe) which seats this party is standing in. However the road the poster is on is actually closed now because a little further on, it (and many houses) was swept away by the soil liquefaction which followed the earthquake. Politics (and everything else) continues, but there’s a huge reconstruction job to be done following a disaster which has literally changed the landscape and claimed thousands of lives.”
