Presentations at State of the Map Global Conference
By Janet CHAPMAN - Project Leader
We were delighted to receive a scholarship to attend and present at the recent Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team and State of the Map conferences. These are global annual events where people come together to share knowledge about everything to do with OpenStreetMap, and we learnt a lot!
We spoke about Crowd2Map at an introductory session about OpenStreetMap - our section is here, and also gave a lightning talk - video here.
There were a huge number of very interesting talks, if you are interested there is more information here.
One of the things we were most interested in is how machine learning is going to help speed up the mapping process. Microsoft have just released building location data for Tanzania and Facebook road data, both of which can be potentially incorporated into our mapping process to improve speed and accuracy.
As there is an FGM cutting season expected in December we are keen to look at anything that can help.
We are also planning another training event for all the Youthmappers and Community mappers to share good practice on how mapping can help Tanzania achieve the SDGs.
