About This Disaster Mapping Response


  • OpenStreetMap Perú @osmpe - Main coordinators of OpenStreetMap relief support. They are coordinating with local contacts. Local responding organizations or civil authorities who need areas mapped or would like to request drone flights should join the HOT slack channel where OSM-PE members are monitoring and you will be connected to the OSM-PE coordinators.
  • As always, any questions or comments can always be sent to info@hotosm.org for an immediate reply.

How You Can Contribute

  • You can contribute from the internet by tracing buildings, roads, waterways, etc. To react rapidly to support humanitarians deploying, we need a lot of contributors for remote editing.
  • The HOT Tasking Manager coordinates emergency mapping by volunteers. This is the first stop for emergency mappers.

Mapper Support

  • You can contribute from the internet by tracing buildings, roads, waterways, etc. To react rapidly to support humanitarians deploying, we need a lot of contributors for remote editing.
  • There are a number of great online tools that will guide you on how to sign up to OpenStreetMap and start mapping with the Tasking Manager. Please see the list of great sites listed in the next section.
  • The best way to learn is to participate to Mapathons where experience contributors of your community will show you the basics of editing. There are a list of events related to this activation listed below.

Printing Paper Maps

Large poster-size maps and letter-size paper atlases of custom areas can be printed:

  • FieldPapers with grid for field survey or general navigation purposes,
  • MapOSMatic with grid, street index and POI, good for command centers, hospitals, etc.

Exporting OpenStreetMap Data

There are numerous ways to export OpenStreetMap data as listed below:

  • HOT Export Tool is the easiest way to get OpenStreetMap data exported into various file formats. Please see the instructions created by Ramani Huria on how to do so.

Offline Road Navigation with Mobile Devices

Offline navigation data proves to be very useful to the humanitarians deployed in foreign countries. And there are a number of tools available on Android and iOS that are easy to use and highly effective:

Emergencies such as this put a tremendous strain on OpenStreetMap's resources, particularly our servers and software. Your donations help keep OSM's systems operating in top form.

Donate to the OpenStreetMap Foundation

The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team also need your donations, to help funding humanitarian mapping projects and development/maintenance of systems such as the Tasking Manager.
