  1. 1. Openstreetmap You can participate ICRC GIS officers - 24/08/2010 Frédéric Bonifas fredericbonifas@gmail.com
  2. 2. What OpenStreetMap needs
  3. 3. Aerial imagery ● Lots of people from OSM are waiting for one thing : tracing over aerial imagery ! ● Identifiable data : roads, landuse, high structures, damaged buildings... ● Rather fast to get vector data from these images
  4. 4. Example : Kyrgyzstan
  5. 5. Field data ● People on the ground often needed for specific data : ● Landuse and roads ● Street names ● Points of interest (health facilities, education, infrastructures...) ● Formats : ● shapefile is the best ● other possibilities : kml, gpx, pictures, sketches by hand...
  6. 6. Licence questions
  7. 7. Aerial imagery License agreement to allow data tracing for OSM Two methods : ● Public WMS, available for anyone to use (eg Haiti) ● Private WMS, available on request for people interested in tracing (eg Kyrgyzstan, Gaza)
  8. 8. Points of interest ● Personal knowledge of the reality ● Public domain data ● No licensed data like copyrighted paper maps or Google Maps ● Example : you collect data with a GPS and then share it with OSM
  9. 9. Please ask !
  10. 10. Scenario You want a map You have a map ! No vector data OSM shapefiles available available You share your data Data integration OSM creates data
  11. 11. Conclusion OSM has dozens of people who waiting for one thing : mapping. We have a lot of potential data sources. So please ask, even now, if vector data is needed for an area !
