    1. 1. OpenStreetMap (OSM) community mapping for Flood Preparedness in Lower Shire, Malawi 30/07/2014 Severin Menard Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (AKA H.O.T.)
    2. 2. 1 OpenStreetMap is a web project aiming at creating a map of the entire world, accessible, free and downloadable for anyone. It has been started in 2004 by a student from UK. = + What is OpenStreetMap? www.osm.org It is based on the joint action of thousands of contributors working voluntarily. Anyone can participate. +150,000 users created more than 2 billion nodes as of today. The ongoing OSM contributions can be followed on http://live.openstreetmap.fr/
    3. 3. OSM focuses on all the visible, physical objects like: roads, buildings, land uses, facilities (health, education..) shops, industries, water and sanitation, natural spaces... but also not visible like administrative boundaries or transportation lines. OSM does not store information about populations or sensitive data. 1 Mapping any feature existing in the field, visible or not

    6. 6. 1 OSM governance The ecosystem of the OSM community Citizens Associations Local governments (ex: BNPB, the National Disaster Management Agency in Indonesia) NGOs International Organizations (UN, WB, USAID, AUSAid) Academia Private actors: • Microsoft, Foursquare • Cloudmade, Geofabrik, Camptocamp, MapBox The growth of the OSM project is fostered by • OpenStreetMap Foundation & local Chapters • Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team for Humanitarian/Development contexts

    8. 8. 1 http://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo OSM mailing lists (geographic, thematic)
    9. 9. 1 La cartographie Collaborative Idea (same as Wikipedia): A large number of individuals contributing together will tend to create high quality data. Free mapping and quality ● Validation tools within editor Different kind of practises and tools strengthen this: ● Quality control tools over an area ● Easy access to each step of the history of every object ● Easy access to all the contributions of every mapper ● Possibility to revert any bad contribution
    10. 10. 1 Quality assurance in OpenStreetMap : validation tools for users within the editors
    11. 11. 1 Quality assurance in OpenStreetMap : Specific checking services Eg: Keepright!

    15. 15. 1 OpenStreetMap and humanitarian data: since the Haiti Earthquake in 2010 Port-au-Prince on OSM, January 12, 2010 Port-au-Prince on OSM, 28 days later Within a few days, the response of the OSM community to map the affected areas has been intensive, as seen in this video.
    16. 16. 1 A new interest from the humanitarian organizations to work with the virtual, technical communities
    17. 17. Coordination 1 HOT is part of the Digital Humanitarian Network http://digitalhumanitarians.com
    18. 18. 1 Free mapping and open data, a new humanitarian field Humanitarian/ Development organizations A NGO has been created in August 2010 to create a bridge between the community of OSM contributors and the humanitarian and development stakeholders. An organization working to promote the use of open data and volunteered geographic information within the humanitarian and development contexts The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team activate a response to quickly provide baseline data to the humanitarian stakeholders. The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team also works or worked on field projects in Indonesia (AusAID), Haiti (USAID), Senegal (IOF), Burundi, CAR, Chad, Kenya (DG ECHO), in order to both create baseline data and build up local capacities by training future trainers to OSM techniques.
    19. 19. 1 OSM Community Mapping in the Lower Shire http://hot.openstreetmap.org/projects/osm_community_mapping_for_flood_preparedness_in_ From late July to late September, a team of 3 HOT contractors will carry out a project in Malawi whose main aim is to achieve a Community Mapping Exercise for the Lower Shire, tin the two flood-prone districts, Chikwawa and Nsanje. The objectives are as follow: ● Hold a series of meetings and training sessions on open data and community mapping, engaging government Departements, university students (especially from the Polytechnic School in Blantyre), NGOs and civil society ● Apply the training by collecting geospatial data in the field in the two most flood prone districts of Malawi (Chikhwawa and Nsanje), edit and upload it in partnership with the OSM worldwide community that has already shown it huge impact when mapping on imagery or editing field collected data with Field Papers ● Explain how to host the data on the Malawi Open Spatial Data Portal (MASDAP) and use it effectively, especially by holding a training on the INASAFE tool to perform contingency planning with the OSM data, as already made elsewhere, especially in Indonesia ● Identify and support community mobilizers to ensure sustainability of the outcomes, and make the community autonomous, able to update and enhance the OSM data, use it when crisis arises, and link with the local disaster management authorities and the OSM worldwide community.
    20. 20. 1 OSM Community Mapping in the Lower Shire http://hot.openstreetmap.org/projects/osm_community_mapping_for_flood_preparedness_in_ The time frame is as follows: ● Week 1 (starting July 29): meetings with stakeholders in Lilongwe ● Week 2 (starting August 4): OSM training and MASDAP/OSM sessions in Lilongwe ● Week 3 (starting August 11): OSM training in Blantyre, Polytechnic School ● Weeks 4 and 5 (starting August 18): OSM field community mapping in Chikwawa district ● Weeks 6 and 7 (starting September 1): OSM field community mapping in Nsanje district ● Week 8 (starting September 15): InaSafe training in Lilongwe
