Event description

Description

Join us for 3 days of digital mapping. Learn from experienced mappers how to update our community map with Open Street Maps. Bring your laptops and put Iringa on the map!

We are assisting with the launch of a First Aid Responders (Huduma ya kwanza) project in Iringa and the software program/app will use Open Street Maps to dispatch first aid responders to the scene.

It is important to add landmarks such as houses, schools, churches, large businesses because the streets are not named or marked and we need the responders to reach the person as quickly as possible.

We have a project already underway in Humanitarian Open Street Maps (https://tasks.hotosm.org/project/3431) which needs to worked on over the 3 days of our mapathon.
