For this month’s installment of Maptime, the group is going to put their OSM skills to work contributing to Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team. Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) applies the principles of open source and open data sharing for humanitarian response and economic development. We will:
- Learn about the Humanitarian OpenStreetMapTeam (HOT)
- Get introduced to / do a quick refresher on OpenStreetMap and
- Dive into contributing to a HOT project using the tasking manager.
As you can see, HOT team focuses on mapping roads and infrastructure to help responders navigate through disaster areas.
When: Thursday, May 28th, 6-8pm
Where: Chicago Community Trust (map) – 225 North Michigan Avenue, #2200. Hosted by Smart Chicago.
