Open Data Day conference and join us for MozSprint

Open Data Training

For Open Data on March 3rd we organised free 3 day training conference on how Open Data and Mapping using OpenStreetMap can aid development in Tanzania.  Over 90 people from across Tanzania attended the event at the Institute of Rural Development Planning in Mwanza, including community mapping groups from Kigoma, Kagera, Mara and other regions, students from IRDP Mwanza and Dodoma, as well as representatives from Tanzania Red CrossTanzania Wildlife ServiceUwezo and many other organisations.You can read more about it here.

We were delighted to attend the Data for Development Festival in Bristol in March where we spoke to many people about Crowd2Map, including members of the Tanzanian parliament, National Bureau of Statistics and Ministry of Lands.  We also met many people involved in machine learning for mapping, including someone from Gates Foundation who gave us the AI generated data for buildings in Tanzania which we hope will be extremely useful.

On May 10th and 11th we are participating in the Mozilla Global Sprint, which is held in over 60 cities around the world and online.  We are hoping to get many people involved in mapping, validating and improving our project.  There is more information here. 

In July we are talking about Crowd2Map at the State of the Map conference in Milan, and in August we are at the HOT Summit in Dar es Salaam.

Thank you again for your generosity that allows us to continue mapping Tanzania to help protect girls from FGM and to aid development.
