Missing Maps Jakarta: Data Preparedness for Volcanoes

The Missing maps project aims to map the most vulnerable places in the developing world, so that international and local NGOs as well as individuals can use the maps and data to better respond to crises affecting the areas. It is a global initiative supported by OpenStreetMap (OSM). To support this goal, the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) Indonesia in cooperation with United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN OCHA), Australia-Indonesia Facility for Disaster Reduction (AIFDR) and National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) has initiated a Missing Maps project focusing on areas surrounding four alert volcanoes in Indonesia (Mt. Sinabung, Rokatenda, Merapi and Kelud). Missing Maps Jakarta is separated to two sessions:

Session 1

Introduction to OSM Data Collection Methods (ID Editor and JOSM), Data Extraction (HOT Exports, Overpass Turbo), and Data Utilization (QGIS and InaSAFE)

November, 6th 2014 | 13:00-16:30 GMT+7

Location: Brisbane Room, AIFDR, Menara Thamrin 15th Floor, Jl. MH. Thamrin Kav. 3, Jakarta 10250

Session 2

Mt. Sinabung Mapping using OSM Task Manager

November, 7th 2014 | 09:00-16:30 GMT+7

Location: Papua Meeting Room, AIFDR, Menata Thamrin 7th Floor, Jl. MH. THamrin Kav 3, Jakarta 10250

On November 7th 2014, the mapping effort focuses on Mt. Sinabung. However, it does not rule out the opportunity to map the other listed alert volcanoes.

Bugs, Problem, and Learning

The rooms provided by AIFDR and UN OCHA were enough to accommodate participants, especially in the second day, the room was huge. The internet connection was not perfect but able to accommodate our activities. The foods were abundant, from Indonesian snacks to tortilla chips. The only significant problem was the poor satellite imagery of Mount Sinabung, it was full of clouds, and we could not help but to map the other places even though Mount Sinabung was erupting during the event.
