OpenStreetMap Geography Awareness Week (OSMGeoWeek), est le festival international de sensibilisation à la cartographie sur OpenStreetMap (le Wikipédia de la cartes). Il se déroule cette année, du 13 au 20 novembre ! Ce festival rassemble l’ensemble des organisations humanitaires, organismes privés, institutions, individus et communautés qui souhaitent sensibiliser à OSM, et faire découvrir cette base de données au plus grand nombre.
CartONG and Action contre la Faim have signed a 3-year partnership agreement to further their collaboration. The partnership agreement that will run from 2020 to 2023 details the general principles of collaboration between our two organizations around common goals and mutual commitments as well as more operational aspects.
As part of this new collaboration, CartONG will develop an interactive web map for ECPM - a French NGO who advocates for the abolition of death penalty wolrdwide - to display the status and key statistics on death penalty in each country of the world. The map will be built on a custom platform using Vue.js libraries. Additionally, CartONG will support ECPM in structuring the dataset to ensure smooth interaction between the data and the web map.
In 2019, CartONG was solicited to support the ICRC GIS team for two different projects. The first project was a story map highlighting what role GIS analysis can play when trying to assess the populations’ access to street lights in different neighbourhoods of Buenaventura. The story map can be found here.
CartONG was contacted in June 2019 by the Cooperation & Development Center of the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) to support the development of a GIS platform for local authorities in Argentina that EPFL was counselling. We provided mentoring on how to build the project requirements, identify risks and chose contractors, via two brainstorming workshops.
