CLOSING CEREMONY & WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT
APJ ABDUL KALAM TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY
APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University (initially Kerala Technological University), is a State Government University that came into existence on May 21, 2014 with an aim to give leadership to the technology related policy formulation and Engineering Planning for the State. It also emphasizes to improve the academic standards of the Graduate, Post Graduate and Research Programmes in Engineering Science, Technology and Management and regulate the academic standards of all colleges affiliated to the University. The main thrust areas of the University are Research, Development and Innovation.
APJAKTU NSS cell
The National Service Scheme (NSS) is a Central Sector Scheme of the Government of India, Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports. It provides opportunity to the student youth of 11th & 12th Class of schools at +2 Board level and student youth of Technical Institution, Graduate & Post Graduate at colleges and University level of India to take part in various government led community service activities & programmes.The sole aim of the NSS is to provide hands on experience to young students in delivering community service. Since inception of the NSS in the year 1969, the number of students strength increased from 40,000 to over 3.8 million up to the end of March 2018. Students in various universities, colleges and Institutions of higher learning have volunteered to take part in various community service programmes.
OpenStreetMap (OSM) is a collaborative project to create a free editable map of the world. The geodata underlying the map is considered the primary output of the project. The creation and growth of OSM has been motivated by restrictions on use or availability of map data across much of the world, and the advent of inexpensive portable satellite navigation devices. OSM Kerala and OSM India communities are actively functioning.
Mapathon Keralam is an initiative aimed at preparing to map all public assets in Kerala and use them for charitable purposes. This is made possible by the participation of the public in developing the ability to make a map. Any Indian citizen can be a part of the mapathon. It is our responsibility to mark our country on the map!

Prior works carried out by NSS
During 2019 around 100 NSS programme Officers (PO) were trained with the help of IT mission and during four weeks in March-April 2020 regional meetings were conducted using Zoom application for NSS PO's and training sessions using Zoom were conducted for volunteers from various regionals. All these meetings were found very effective for creating awareness about OSM. 14 colleges were identified as training centers for geo tagging and PO's from these institutions are well trained to conduct training sessions. During May 2020, 5 days internships were provided to 1100 students from the University in the area of geo mapping using OSM. Even after all these efforts the number of students who are aware about the OSM is only a fraction of student strength of the University.
