CartONG organized on April 24 to 27, 2017 a training on the webmapping application developed for the National Committee against AIDS (CNLS) in Madagascar, in partnership with UNAIDS Indian Ocean. The staff and some partners of SE-CNLS have learned to use and manage this tool that allows to list the projects fighting AIDS in the field.

CartONG a organisé du 24 au 27 avril 2017 une formation sur l'application cartographique développée pour le Comité National de Lutte contre le SIDA (SE-CNLS) à Madagascar, en partenariat avec l'ONUSIDA Océan Indien. La formation a permis aux employés et à des partenaires du CNLS de prendre en main l'outil de façon durable.

CartONG implements site mapping together with UNHCR FICCS unit by deploying a user-friendly smartphone application for data collection and maintenance and store all collected information online in versatile web maps accessible to all actors in need of it. Already covered camps are accessible in the webmap section of the map portal (maps.unhcr.org).

CartONG continuously works on improving the site mapping application. For instance, since 2017, it is possible to view camps that have been mapped in OpenStreetMap and to also open them. Also, the database model was enhanced further after assessing data set compiled by other site mapping actors to boost compatibility of the approach and enhance data interoperability. Support provided by CartONG may also involves camp mapping missions, such as the one conducted in 2017 in Nepal.

In 2018, the Site Mapping Application saw improvements oriented towards three main objectives. Firstly, the application went through an in-depth review of its user interface and design, aiming for a simpler and better user experience, as well as reaching full compliance with UNHCR Graphical Chart. Secondly, functionalities focusing on analysis and download of UNHCR’s own data were upgraded and matured. Constant debugging and improved quality control were implemented all throughout the year. The application was also set up to further integrate OpenStreetMap data. For the integration of OSM data, a pilot project focused on five refugee camps in Uganda was conducted to assess the best ways of integrating OSM data into the UNHCR database ; and an additional project focused on importing UNHCR data into OSM. The import was documented in a Wiki. Learn more by reading our 2018 Annual Report.
