Preparation

HOT would play a role with the in-country coordinators to articulate surveys with satellite imagery processings about flood/landslides extents and other relevant damage assessments on key infrastructure.

The HOT Team is:

  • gathering the useful equipment available for OSM mapping in Dakar.
  • Nicolas is currently on the ground in Dakar until 1-sept facilitating a hot/ osm training at a Tech Camp on rural development (30 & 31-Aug) and a mapping party focused on flood response (1-sept) and meeting with local actors.
  • coordinating with local OSM mappers as well as humanitarian and governemental actors.
