OpenStreetMap Geography Awareness Week (OSMGeoWeek), is an international festival on OpenStreetMap ("OSM", the Wikipedia of maps). It takes place this year, November 13 to 20!

This festival gathers all humanitarian organizations, private and institutional bodies, individuals, and communities that wish to raise awareness about OSM, and help as many people discover this database, all while contributing to tangible projects around the world!

Le projet MAnnheimer MAPAthons ("MAMAPA") a pour objectif de soutenir les efforts d'intégrations des migrants dans la région Rhin-Neckar en Allemagne, et de permettre des contributions utiles à des actions humanitaires internationales.

The MAnnheimer MAPAthons ("MAMAPA") project is designed to achieve two specific goals: to support efforts toward the integration of immigrants (resident in the Rhein-Neckar region of Germany) and to meaningfully contribute to international humanitarian initiatives.

By offering introductory training in modern cartography through immigrant participation in locally-organized mapathons, both of these ends can be served effectively and simultaneously.

En août 2017, CartONG a signé le protocole d’accord du Global Healthsites Mapping Project afin de concrétiser un partenariat avec Healthsites.io visant au développement d’une carte en ligne en accès libre répertoriant tous les services de santé au monde.

In August 2017, CartONG signed the Global Healthsites Mapping Project’s Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to form a partnership with Healthsites.io focused on the development of an open data online map of every health-care facility in the world.

I. Background

Founded in 2006, CartONG is a French non-governmental organization committed to furthering the use of geographic information tools to improve data gathering and analysis for emergency relief and development programmes around the world.

In line with the partnership developed between Doctors without Borders-Switzerland (MSF-CH) and CartONG since 2013, CartONG actively supports the organization in the definition of its GIS needs and the implementation of a global GIS development strategy. In keeping with this work, MSF asked CartONG to develop an online tool allowing for better contextualization of daily briefings.

 

Début mars, à la demande du Comité International de la Croix Rouge (CICR), CartONG et le projet Missing Maps lançaient un projet pour cartographier Goma en République Démocratique du Congo. La carte existante montrait la ville telle qu’elle l’était en 2010 et avait grand besoin d’être mise à jour. A l’aide de tous les contributeurs OSM sur le projet (c’est à dire près de 80 personnes) 1343 km de route et 68 604 nouveaux bâtiments ont été ajoutés !

In the beginning of March, after the request made by the International Committee of the Red Cross, CartONG and the Missing Maps project started mapping Goma in DRC. The existing map showed the city as it was in 2010 and therefore needed to be updated. With the help of many OSM contributors on this project (approximately 80 people), 1343 km of road and 68 604 new buildings have been added to the map !
