Presentation I gave at the Denver OpenStreetMap meetup in June 2011. A bit of something for everyone - some intro slides for newbies and assorted examples of (mainly) new and interesting applications, data usage and development tools.

We are working with the Australia-Indonesia Facility for Disaster Reduction to collect exposure data using OpenStreetMap. We are working with 5 universities to collect urban data and community facilitators in rural areas to collect the information there. The goal is to collect 3 attributes about each building (number of ﬂoors, wall type and roof type). That will then be fed into risk modeling software. Currently it is a three month pilot to determine the feasibility of using OSM for this. With the rural facilitators they are already doing poverty mapping and we are just aiming to give them better tools in order to improve what they are doing as well as get them to collect some more data for the risk models. Kate Chapman It turns out the attributes we are interested in alsoExecutive Director of HOT can feed into the poverty analysis so they are really excited about it.New HOT project in Indonesia 28
