  • 1. OpenStreetMap (OSM) Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) Facts (2008-2009)
  • 2. what is openstreetmap? the openstreetmap “one-liner” A web project to create a free and open map of the entire world, built entirely from volunteers surveying with GPS, digitizing aerial imagery, and collecting and liberating existing public sources of geographic data. = +
  • 3. free and open voluntary map of the voluntary, open contributions open use open contribution. open use. world.
  • 4. amenity = hospital Tags! POIs name = Saint James emergency = yes Ways highway = primary name = Otley Road ref = A660 Areas highway = residential name = Chestnut Lane oneway = true surface = flags leisure=nature_reserve
  • 5. OpenStreetMap data generation. Field capture/ imagery tracing and imports of PD and share-alike geodata sets. Canada GeoBase Falkland Islands New Zealand Austria Palestine
  • 6. Data semantic interoperability. Convergence of bottom-up (OSM) and “directed” (reference data models) ontologies.
  • 7. Data semantic interoperability example. Cross walk of OSM tagging system and UNSDIT United Nations Spatial Data Infrastructure for Transport (UNSDIT used as transportation data model in the WFP SDI).
  • 8. OSM: the key elements of a comprehensive solution for geodata management. 1. Free and interoperable data. 2. the OSM Architecture: web platform and client application, web services and toolkit. 3. the OSM ecosystem: tools and applications sprung up around OSM free geodata (routing engines, map cartographic libraries, mobile API's, countless mashups, several editors, quality checkers etc...) resulting into a positive feedback loop to the project by ensuring data improvement... 4. The power of a critical mass of 180,000 members fast-growing, active and skilled community in: - data generation and maintenance - system development (volunteers/ start-up-companies). - documentation - community-powered learning, training and capacity building.
  • 9. H.O.T Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team
  • 10. a new initiative rooted in OSM building on two years of informal cooperation to apply the principles and activities of open source and open data sharing towards humanitarian response and economic development.
  • 11. Core Mission - connecting point between humanitarian and open mapping communities - remote data creation during crisis - collection and organization of existing data sources - deployments to the field possible - distribution point for free data Advocacy, Training and Outreach - mapping parties - speaking, writing, meetings in humanitarian and United Nations technical communities Thinking and Design - promotion of crowd-sourcing and simple web standards for data sharing - technical improvements to OSM and OSGeo in response to field requirements (offline support, verification, format adaptors, multi-master sync..)
  • 12. 1. Data sharing.
  • 13. Data sharing 1 UNJLC Haiti data import Leverage WFP SDI Community CartONG, UNJLC, Bonn U. & OSM Tool Ecosystem OpenRouteService, GPS maps data import licensing re-use constraints: “public domain” data from UNJLC operation imported in OSM
