Building a Community: HOT in Indonesia

Day: Sunday
Time: 12:00pm

In March 2011 the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) traveled to Indonesia for the first time. The question being asked was could community mapping through OpenStreetMap be used to help government and communities better plan for disaster? The initial answer was “yes” though in the time since methodologies and approaches have changed and adapted. This talk will go over what HOT has learned in the past three years, what is planned for the future and how our lessons might apply to other places.
