Introduction to Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team

Published on

This introduction was given at the International Humanitarian Technology Conference. http://ihtc.ieee.ca/ . This workshop session was run with Samuel Paul Alce and Pierre Beland of HOT OSM.

Summary: Since the Haiti  earthquake in 2010, new partners support the UN Agencies and International organizations through the Web 2.0 or Collaborative Web.  OpenStreetMap is one of these community of volunteers. It has shown on several occasions its ability to mobilize hundreds of contributors and support remotely, providing maps and services necessary for such actions. The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) makes the bridge with the humanitarian organizations.
In this session, we will discuss open source methods for humanitarian technology. The workshop will include an overview of Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team’s (HOT) activities, some of the tools and best practices. We will include stories of activations around the world from Indonesia to Haiti to Philippines and the DRC. Our session also includes hands on training from HOT community leaders. Join us and learn about new methods in digital and in-person responders using OpenStreetMap.
