  • There's 3 main stages with crisis mapping, first is data collection, second is applying the data to early days disaster response And the last is reconstruction and ongoing capacity building. Worth noting that the crisis in haiti is still ongoing.
  • The first was characteriesd by mass collaboration to create and collect data So, what happened. A refresher
  • Earlier in the Year, a very large earthquake shook the ground in haiti, near port au prince. The country was and remain quite deprived with awful conditions. Lots of people lost their lives, and many were trapped.
  • OSM looked like this on the day of the earthquake. And this was mainly responsibly by myself importing donated data from the CNGIS – the mapping office of Haitian government – following their previous disaster of severe flooding a year or two previously. That office, and most of the senior staff perished in the earthquake
  • 3 days later, and a lot of detail was added. The activity was tremendous
  • Closer in
  • By day 4, displacement camps were being added, as better up to date imagery became available
  • And by 2 weeks after the earthquake good detailed maps were created
  • There was a need for shapefile extracts, and also garmin gps images, to put the maps on gps units. These files were updated every 5 minutes!
  • It really was unique – the first time that people were able to reach out, remotely, from their armchairs even, and make a difference A source from a UN agency said that what would have taken a comercial mapping company tens of thousands if not millions and years to do, OSM too 3 weeks.
  • Lots of imagery was provided from multiple sources, all for free and a lot of them were, for the first time, allowed for OSM to trace over them
  • Here's some of the footprints of the imagery given. There were also some UAV oblique imagery. There was the need to tile that imagery up – so it can be traced, used as backdrops, for agencies to analyse.
  • The haiti crisis map, served by telascience, and mainly set up by chris schmidt sprang to life and was the primary place to go for tiles and imagery.
  • Myself, with my client at the New York Public Libray deployed an instance of my public domain map warper application – to rectify and serve the Library's collection of maps for the region – some of the only good detail maps available We also rectified the GeoEye imagery, which was misregistered.
  • So day 1 again
  • And a month later
  • In summary for the collection part
  • The data had to be used
  • Immediately it was used on GPS devices – the extracts were produced and were loaded up onto the devices. For the first time, responders had good level street maps to guide them. Mapaction – the UK based mapping organisation made good use of this service. The fairfax county urban search and rescue team wrote and expressed their thanks.
  • Mappers adapted quickly to tag earthquake damage of buildings for example
  • In order to help damage assessment efforts
  • The UNOCHA expressed an urgent need to map the spontanous camps that sprang up, and the mappers were able to instantly add the camps that they saw.
  • And the NGO was able to give food to the camps
  • Routing was crucial – particularly when roads were blocked. ORS, from university of bonn, produced a special haiti routing application – which enabled people to draw on that map blockages and obstacles, whilst also reading the osm data to see if there were obstacles recorded
  • The crisis is ongoing – the rainy season will start soon And theres a focus on increasing OSM work
  • The rains increase the likelhood of floods, disease and landslides
  • Deployments Theres been 3 deployments by osmers to Haiti - Nicolas, pictured, is currently out there with Kate Chapman In the box are printers, GPS units, laptops. Their mission is
  • The gis dept, the CNGIS is coming back online, (as it was destroyed) but some of the staff are learing OSM and taking ownership
  • The guys are doing lots of training with many different actors, and are seeing lots of enthusiasm
