The first State of the Map Tanzania conference in December was a great success and had a huge impact on the mapping community in Tanzania.  177 people attended, travelling from all over Tanzania and 9 other countries for the 3 day conference.  The first day was mostly around the impact of mapping for Tanzania and the subsequent two days for practical workshops to develop mapping skills, led by mappers from Ramani Huria and Heidleberg University, Germany.  The conference was attended by government officials, NGOs, and health workers as well as community and youth mappers and was featured on two TV stations and the national newspaper. You can read more about it here.

Next Tuesday February 6th is International Day of Zero Tolerance for FGM so we are attending an event to commemorate this at Canada House in London and have organised this online mapathon.  Anyone with an internet connection can take part so please tell your friends!

On Saturday March 3rd it is Open Data Day so we have organised an online event and a training event in Mwanza, Tanzania.

For any supporters in London, UK, we are talking about Crowd2Map at OpenStreetMap London on Wednesday 7th March details here, and it would be great to see you there! 

We now have this short film about Crowd2Map.

Many thanks for your support to get rural Tanzania on the map!
