Often called “The Wikipedia of Maps”, OpenStreetMap is an open source, crowd sourced map of the world, created by you! We’ll learn how to edit OpenStreetMap and work together to improve the map of Bloomington, and other areas of interest. OpenStreetMap has become the go-to map for humanitarian aid organizations to use post-conflict. Tomnod uses satellite imagery and a team of volunteers to work on campaigns as varied as counting seals to detecting wildfires. This workshop will prepare you to contribute to humanitarian mapping projects in the future.
