Josep Sitjar (University of Girona): Collaborative mapping for humanitarian action.

This u_Lecture will be held in Spanish language!

From November 10th to 16th, various events are organized around the world in the framework of the #osmgeoweek2019 that aims to celebrate geography and create maps with OpenStreetMap, the open cartography of the whole world.

We want to join this initiative organizing a webinar showing how to map collaboratively with OSM in the humanitarian context and through the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) initiative.

Objective: In this webinar we will teach how to map with OSM, which can be useful in a multitude of contexts in which we need to update the mapping of a territory. And we will see how to map specifically in the framework of a HOT task, a task that connects with the mapping needs the organization has identified in the framework of a humanitarian mission.

We will propose and promote working with a specific task (s) and thus generate a dynamic of participation and collaboration of the attendees in the OSM and HOT project.

Bio: Josep Sitjar is a GIS analyst developer in the GIS and Remote Sensing Service (SIGTE) of the University of Girona and a teacher of the UNIGIS Girona GIS training program.
