  6. 6. Observations • There were over 7000 contributors from the wider OpenStreetMap Community, including large groups like MapGive, PeaceCorps and Missing Maps. • During the emergency, international experts joined to provide auxiliary resources. Some examples include a pilot explaining helipad identification and an aid worker creating a satellite guide for displaced persons camp. • A team in India worked with KLL to create new printable maps. The Japanese community wrote a full guide to help their participants • Guides created by Kathmandu Living Labs for mapping in Nepal were used in mapathons around the globe from Tokyo (Japan), San Paolo (Brazil), Miami (USA) and Trento (Italy).
