Hi I am Shoaib Burq, an OpenStreetMap enthusiast and contributor. I am also a founding member of the Aust-NZ OSGeo Chapter. This talk is going to give you a very brief overview of how the open street map (osm) community organised themselves across the planet to help the first responders on the ground in Haiti and helped save lives.
The earthquake occurred at 21:53 UTC / 16:53 Local (-5 GMT) just south of Port-au-Prince 15 km SW of Port-au-Prince
