In 2018, CartONG was activated to support the GIS team of ICRC for a few months, working on 4 different projects.

CartONG was activated twice in 2017 by ICRC to support them by generating data in OpenStreetMap and preparing databases that were then exploited by the ICRC Water & Sanitation teams to plan their operations.
The first project was led in Goma (Democratic Republic of the Congo), where ICRC needed map to plan new water distribution infrastructures. A second similar project was conducted in October to map the cities of Diffa and N’Guigmi in Niger using OpenStreetMap. Leanr more by checking out our 2017 Annual Report.
CartONG produced Base maps and Emergency maps, as well as compiled Geodatabases and Atlases for the International Comittee of the Red Cross (ICRC) headquarters in Geneva.
The deliveries included maps for ICRC concerning Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Middle East and 100 contextual maps of other countries. All of these geographic data were about specific themes like communications, services, energy, and economic data, in order to enable the comprehension of the local context and make decision making easier.
