HOT Data Quality Internship: A Learning Journey

  1. 1. HOT Data Quality Internship: A Learning Journey - Results and perspectives of a collaborative project Presenter: Federica Gaspari (PoliMappers, OSM Italy) Twitter: @fede_gaspari
  2. 2. About Us: Who? 67 interns trained by Geoffrey Kateregga and Rebecca Chandiru Where? Online… from 24 different countries! When? 12 weeks (Aug-Oct 2020) Why? Work together online in order to ensure good-quality data in OSM, learning the foundations of the validation procedure in HOT Tasking Manager and training on the use of specific tools.
  3. 3. Week 1 - On-boarding call (goals and purposes of the program) Week 2 - Basic JOSM Week 3 - Advanced JOSM (Editing history and data quality) Week 4 - Validation with JOSM training Week 5 - Map Roulette and Map Paint Styles Week 6 - Quality Assurance with OSMCha, OSM Inspector, Keep Right and Osmose Week 7 - Introduction to QGIS Week 8 - Data Quality Assurance with QGIS Week 9 - Introduction to Overpass Turbo and UMap Week 10 - Mapping and Validating on given tasks Week 11 - Mapping and Validating on given tasks Week 12 - Off-boarding call Our Journey:
  4. 4. Places we mapped: Data: OpenStreetMap Contributorr Map by Dina Jovanovic
  5. 5. Stats on the map: 132192 Buildings Mapped/Validated 12437 km Highways Mapped/Validated 362 km Waterway Mapped/Validated 527 Features Land Use Mapped/Validated 514 Features Natural Mapped/Validated 5974 Tasks Mapped 11603 Tasks Validated
  6. 6. “Well, I always wanted to work in an NGO ever since I entered university, I kind of hoped this would be a stepping stone/first step before having a career in an NGO. The second reason is for networking, the idea of having a global internship where I will meet other mappers from around the world is very tempting. The internship program has become a place for us mappers to exchange stories, experiences and knowledge so we all can grow together. Before I participated in the internship I didn't have much stats. But thanks to this internship I am now an intermediate mapper.” Highlights from the interns: Dina Jovanovic (OSM Serbia, PoliMappers) “Because of COVID-19 pandemic, volunteering online seemed like the only option to contribute to the society. Combining that with my desire to learn and connect to the people interested in the same topic, I succeeded to become intermediate mapper during internship and to meet great people. I gained many software skills, but also I learned a lot of OSM tagging system. I am already trying to apply this knowledge on data quality validations in Serbia. I appreciate the fact that we learned open and free sources as JOSM, QGIS and Overpass Turbo, which can be useful for many purposes.” Faqih Rohmatulloh (Jakarta, Indonesia)
  7. 7. Highlights from the interns: “These three months internship could simply be summarized as the period of learning, improving our skill sets on using open source softwares, helping and getting helped from the fellow interns located around the globe. This experience is surely to help me in my near career goals and has surely made us aware of the future problems we may encounter and the need of humanitarian mappers for today. The time is never too late for doing something good.” Aman KC (GESAN, Nepal) “For me it was important to learn and contribute towards mapping in order to become an advanced mapper, being also able to validate some tasks. My greatest achievement from this programme is having learned other software to use for mapping like QGIS and JOSM in addition to iD editor that was the one I only knew about before. I believe after more training I'll be able to join the YouthMappers network, establishing a new chapter here since I haven't had any yet in Botswana.”Tebogo Syanjibu (Botswana)
  8. 8. “I started from the beginning as a mapper and reached an intermediate level. I learned about mapping via different softwares. After discovering Overpass Turbo it became quite easy for me to get data for my QGIS projects. Trainings were also helpful for engaging in interesting activities during lockdown. Also, I got to know that there are many people who are actively mapping and volunteering for the community, working for disaster management program. Many students don't know about mapping and how to map in our community. If we can share with them our experiences, they can also contribute for the society, they can actively contribute for crisis management.” Highlights from the interns: Said Othman Suleiman (SUZA YouthMappers, Tanzania) “First, through this training I have managed to promote myself into an advanced mapper role, on the other hand I have managed to acquire different skills and knowledge on different tools including QGIS, JOSM, ID editor and other. Finally, this internship shaped my GIS career and gave me a good direction on how to proceed in this path. I have already arranged different training and skills that I gained and shared with my fellow local community. For instance, in the past few weeks we gave training to SUZA students on different GIS tools and techniques.” Ashok Gahatraj (GESAN, Nepal)
  9. 9. “I found the internship program was a great opportunity for me to share and widen my mapping skills. The most valuable things I learned were different JOSM techniques for mapping buildings with different shapes and road tagging according to road hierarchy, as well as validation tools. My favorite part was the training sessions. Thanks to Geoffrey and Rebecca for their time and for organizing the trainings. It was a great time, and I enjoyed learning some new mapping techniques. Validation helps to recheck mappers’ work and fix the errors made or missed by mappers, cleaning the data before publishing it to OpenStreetMap. In validation, we focus on quality, not quantity.” Highlights from the interns: Awania Morish (Kampala, Uganda) “I gave mappers feedback, which is very important to understand the quality of the work they are doing and gives them the confidence to do more mapping. During the Internship, we learned validating, which helps OpenStreetMap mappers to give high-quality data, and also provides HOT with clean data for humanitarian use. When a disaster occurs, validated data gives users clear information about the place and situation.This internship made me become a member of HOT global validation team which allows me to validate more advanced projects” Samwel Kyando (Tanzania)
  10. 10. ...and from the trainers: “During the HOT data quality internship program, I enjoyed working with people from all over the world for fundamental cause, improving the quality of OpenStreetMap data while at the same time equipping the participants with skills and knowledge on using the different quality assurance tools out there. After the internship program, many of the participants have continued to participate in HOT activities through the different Working Groups which is good to see!”Geoffrey Kateregga Community Programs Manager, Voting Member “Congratulations to all the Data quality internees upon the successful completion of the programme. The internship programme was great, different OSM Quality Assurance tools trained to improve the quality of data in OpenStreetMap. The programme also is participating towards achieving the HOT's core values, especifically, everyone is counted: Open high-quality base map everywhere and is also giving opportunity to many young people all over the world to contribute to OSM. Great progress so far with the programme and hoping for it to become bigger and better.“ Finance/Accountant Assistant Rebecca Chandiru
