Introduction to OpenStreetMap.org Relief Mapping for Nepal

OSM Contributors at Kathmandu Living Labs operational one day after the earthquake

Want to help with relief efforts in Nepal after Saturday’s Magnitude 7.8 earthquake?

In this special WesGIS/Mapping workshop, we’ll introduce tools that you can use to contribute toward relief efforts in Nepal through mapping. We’ll get you registered, provide a hands-on introduction to mapping using OpenStreetMap.org’s browser-based iD editor, and show you how to find lists of mapping tasks that need completion (following the basic outline presented at  http://mapgive.state.gov). New satellite images and tasks are being posted daily and there is still much work to be done.

The room has 30 computers. Please bring a laptop if you have one.

When: Friday, May 1, 2:003:00 pm
Where: Allbritton 204
Who: Anyone in the Wesleyan community who is interested in helping out by tracing (digitizing) objects from aerial photos. No GIS experience required.

Please RSVP at http://goo.gl/forms/PZwWGMAHIu and spread the word.
