  • Transcript of "OpenStreetMap (OSM): Mapping from the crowd and on the field open data preparedness, crisis response and recovery"

    1. 1. OpenStreetMap (OSM): Mapping from the crowd and on the field open data preparedness, crisis response and recovery 18/10/2013 Severin Menard Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (AKA H.O.T.)
    2. 2. 1 What is OpenStreetMap? www.osm.org 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. = + 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. 1 Mapping any feature existing in the field, visible or not 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.
    4. 4. 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 • •
    5. 5. 1 OSM Wiki http://wiki.openstreetmap.org
    6. 6. 1 Free mapping and quality Idea (same as Wikipedia): A large number of individuals contributing together will tend to create high quality data. Different kind of practises and tools strengthen this: ● Validation tools within editor ● 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 cartographie Collaborativemapper ● La ● Possibility to revert any bad contribution
    7. 7. Contributing to OSM: 1 Mapping over Imagery
    8. 8. 1 Contributing to OSM: mapping over Imagery Bing allows the OpenStreetMap contributors to trace over all its imagery.
    9. 9. 1 Java Based OpenStreetMap Editor http://josm.openstreetmap.de/ Can be easily enhanced, many plugins, works well with sporadic connectivity
    10. 10. Humanitarian benefit: Baseline data from the crowd in crisis contexts
    11. 11. 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.
