Mission 1 reports

Mission 1 thoughts

we got more than a commitment now with Haitian (grass root communities, individuals & CNIGS) i think we have at hand what we wanted building HOT: a NMA operating based on openness articulating its open SDI to OSM and its both local & international community in a respectful manner to carry out work in its mandate (base map) and in disaster response

Mission 1 follow-up

  • International: most of the GISers posted here will be rotated out of country and with them the institutional memory of the op, we will bridge in and make of the CNIGS the reference-
  • CNIGS: keep supporting them and rolling in in editing and map production the OS Geo Stack + facilitate any tools development
  • grass root: train train train with support of all good will actors
  • If we can keep 2 OSM persons in this mission: I can expose OSM volunteers to this operation and grow our network of deployable people
  • this long term presence will make us fully cognizant of all operational needs of each phase of work from preparedness to emergency to development with plans to get those 3 sets of actors operating in a coordinated manner and we wil keep builidng the toolset of OSM (our HOT SDI) with volunteer workforce boosted when possible by funded projects aligned to our Strat & Plan proposal
