European YoutHumanitarian OpenStreetMap - euYoutH OSM

Welcome - Bienvenido - Benvido - Bine ați venit - Willkommen

What are the aims of euYoutH_OSM?

Five schools from five European countries (Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Romania and Germany) have set themselves the task of introducing as many pupils as possible to OpenStreetMap at their schools and to get them interested in mapping. The students will be introduced carefully and concentrated to differentiated mapping. We will use existing material as far as possible (such as LearnOSM) and, if necessary, create additional training material. (maybe screenscast)

It is not our goal to produce "nodes en masse", but to train responsible mappers who can also help with humanitarian mapping. Not quantity, but quality matters.

Problems and solutions

  As one partner from the UK left after the approval of the project, the tasks had to be redistributed between the remaining partners.

Joint mapping as "pre-disaster mapping" of the island of Terceira

SRPCBA 06.jpg After visiting Civil Protection in Angra do Heroísmo, everyone became aware of the importance of mapping houses and streets in preparation for a possible earthquake in Terceira.
Terceira.jpg For this reason, we decided to map the island of Terceira in the best possible way.
Terceira in Tasking Manager.jpg In order to keep the whole task manageable, we divided the island into small squares in the Tasking Manager

Split task.jpg Contribute - Task too big? Split - Are you sure to split this task? - YES! ;-)

The Tasking Manager allows mapping together and/or on different places without the mappers hindering each other.
Emptyhouse.jpg OHZ-K28-Bergedorfer Str.jpg The task for each team is to map buildings and highways.
T ohne Namen.jpg The Portuguese team also has the task of determining the street name on site and entering it in OpenStreetMap.
By using Field Papers and some mobile apps (like GoMap!; StreetComplete; KeyPadMapper; OSMTracker; ...) we map the street names and housing numbers in Angra do Heroísmo.
