  • Work for the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team. We utilize OpenStreetMap for disaster response and preparedness. Today I’m going to talk the community mapping work we’ve been doing in Indonesia
  • AusAID, BNPB and GFDRR were building risk modeling software. At the time it was nicknamed Risk in a Box. You can see the current iteration at github called InaSAFE
  • AusAID and the World Bank were building open-source risk modeling software
  • OpenStreetMap is a map wiki that allows anyone with an account to contribute. The flexible folksomy makes it easy to contribute different types of data. So we began a pilot to collect building information. I’m not going to talk about all of this, just a community mapping component.
  • One of the ways to collect the necessary information that was needed for risk modelling that we tried was working with groups already doing mapping.
  • ACCESS is a community governance strengthening project. One of the phases of their process is that they make detailed poverty maps. ACCESS is active all over Eastern Indonesia.
  • First pilot areas. Different approach in rural areas (work with community facilitators) in urban areas have a contest!
  • This is an example of the type of map they current make. It is from Corel Draw and has no geospatial component.
  • After 4 or 5 workshops the need for change became apparent. Jeff Haack and Emir Hartato relooked at the training program. Since people were already familiar with paper maps that seemed to be the place to start.
  • Involving the group more also helped.
  • Constant discussion of the map as well. These were community facilitators they were use to these types of discussions.
  • Talibiu in Bima
  • Meeting with the village secretary to get the boundaries right.
