Between January and April 2012, this pilot project aims at both improving drastically the baseline data across the territory of the commune of Saint-Marc and building strong mapping capacities within the Saint-Marc development corridor, based on the OpenStreetMap (OSM) technologies and training concepts. It is led by COSMHA (Communauté OSM de Haiti) with HOT (Humanitarian OSM Team) support, and funded by USAID/OTI (the US Agency for International Development's Office of Transition Initiatives).

Regarding the data, the project aims at collecting and updating the baseline data necessary for the economic development of this territory. On the first hand, specific tools will be created in order to allow an easy access to the OSM data through interoperable exchange file formats (shapefile, kml, spatialite) from a download web dataservice (ETL, Extract Transform Load). On the other hand, web visualization tools will be designed for the collected data. With this set, the different parties involved in the Saint-Marc development corridor will be provided raw data and map products as well as important elements such as geo-spatial comprehension and decision making.

The COSMHA/HOT team supervises 30 young people from various localities within the Saint-Marc territory who are trained in order to make the whole mapping of their commune. In the end, this approach aims at an autonomous OpenStreetMap community being set up in Saint-Marc, that will handle the techniques, documentation, tools, processes and collective systems all necessary to lead and continue the ground data collection and editing activities created and implemented during the STM020 project. This community will also be able to create new OSM based projects in the Saint-Marc development corridor, the Artibonite departement or other places within the Haitian territory.

Outside the project direct aims, many activities are organized around the OSM and mapping themes, mostly during the week-ends.
