  • Just raining for 2-3 hours there must be some area got flooded
  • A mural lamenting floods in Jakarta.
  • During the needs assessment, we give them questions about their impression when flood occurs.Some of them actually feel happy because they can play with the water and the school is dismissed.They’re not that aware of how devestating flood can be.
  • Creating a map with flood theme can help young people to understand the hazards around them and also help the process of critical thinking by providing a perspective of the lessons that they have acquired through books and learning activitiesThe younger generation are expected to develop their ability to express opinions based on their experiences and insights so that they can become agents of positive change for the community.Through this training, students are expected to not only gain knowledge in the field of GIS that can facilitate them to create and utilize an interactive map, but also helps them to be able to further explore the lessons learned in school. This training can be useful for day-to-day activities and their work in the future.
  • To build their interest, we should combine mapping activity with another method
  • Students were interacting with local people to get as much and rich information as they could
  • This is a portable and public toilet located in a government-owned flats Pluit Reservoir area. When flood happened, this toilet was pretty useful for the victims. But, this toilet is broken now and no one ever use this again.
  • This house was one of the houses that were affected by January 2013 flood. But, as the owner said, it always got big flooded at least once every 5 years. This house were located in northeastern of Pluit Reservoir and in a basin area. As seen on the wall, there is a mark indicating the water level during the flood, approximately 2 meters high
  • This creek is located in the north of Pluit Reservoir.There is a dense people settlement around the creek, and it is a habit of the people that they throw their household waste to the water body. As the result, the water flow is not smooth, and if flood occured, the settlement around this area automatically got flooded. On early 2013 flood events, this area was flooded for mor than 2 meters depth.
  • Mapping Flood POI Using OSM and Photovoice

    1. 1. Mapping Flood POI using OSM and Photovoice { Vasanthi Hargyono @justva
    2. 2. Background Part of the “UNESCO’ World POI” Map Project which is implemented through UNESCO Office in Nairobi, Windhoek, New Delhi and Jakarta.  POI theme varies depending on the issues that develop in each city. 
    3. 3. In Jakarta?
    4. 4.
    5. 5. “I don’t believe in doomsday. I just believe that if it’s rain in Jakarta, There WILL BE flood.”
    6. 6. Who Participate? SMKN 56 P LUIT, NORTH JAKARTA
    7. 7. Why Students?
    8. 8. Why Students?
    9. 9. Combine OpenStreetMap with another Method (?) Interesting Fun Easy Can be use in daily basis
    10. 10. Photovoice
    11. 11. What is PhotoVoice? PhotoVoice is a participatory process to deliver a message using photograph.
    12. 12. WHY PHOTOGRAPH? > Capturing photos is simple. Anyone can do it. > Photos can cross the cultures and language differences > Digital Photography is easier to access nowadays > Channels to share photos is more diverse > It’s a good recording tool and the process itself is creative.
    13. 13. Easy, Fun, Flexible PhotoVoice can be a good movement to give visual view of reality.
    14. 14. A Photo Can Speak “...” PhotoVoice = photo + movement Purpose: record, discussions, change.
    15. 15. Participatory Photo There is no guarantee, that the photos on Photovoice project could change a situation. But at least, the reality is sounding. That is Participation
    16. 16. How to do Photovoice ? Take a photo/video of an event or object on the field + Add more description, your aspiration about the photo/video + Crowdmap Website/ Ushahidi Platform
    17. 17. + Location
    18. 18. OSM and Photovoice Training
    19. 19. POI Training (Day 1)     Tuesday, October 8th 2013 31 students were attending the training Computer units were provided in the classroom Materials: POI concept, Pluit Flood events, Paper Maps (Map Digitalization), Introduction to OpenStreetMap, Photovoice and Crowdmap Introduction, Using GPS and Field Papers
    20. 20. Paper Maps!
    21. 21. Field Survey (Day 2)    October 9th, 2013 The main purpose is for POI data collection Number of participants attending were 31 students, divided into 4 groups: 2 groups in Muara Baru and 2 groups in Tanah Pasir
    23. 23. Some POI photos collected
    24. 24. Field Survey Activities
    25. 25. POI Training (Day 3)    Held on the October 10th 2013 Morning session: Field survey data input, building crowdmap and photovoice website Afternoon session: inputing field data to OpenStreetMap using JOSM software, announcement for the best group and best student competition
    26. 26. Some of the Best Photos
    27. 27.
    28. 28. DAY 1 DAY 2 DAY 3
    29. 29. Lesson Learned    Needs Assessment is important, know the participant’s characteristic beforehand Make the sessions as interactive as we can -> videos, small competition, rewards Internet connection is crucial, trainers should bring backups such as MiFi modem, or USB modems
