OpenStreetMap BASECAMP - Community Space for Local Mappers, created initially by volunteers to help recovery efforts and assist the many displaced people in Eastern Japan, after the dramatic earthquake and tsunami in Sendai.

What is OSMbasecamp?

OpenStreetMap BASECAMP: Regional mapping site. The above logo is used as a symbol (or mark) for existing regional community-base sites so that mappers can find them. It was started at the recovery effort for the Great East Japan Earthquake, and the Kamaishi AOBA became its first basecamp.

OSMbasecamp has received the support from Hack for Japan and OpenStreetMap Foundation Japan (OSMFJ), but it has been mainly led by OSMFJ recovery map team (person in charge: Furuhashi), and is gradually spreading across the country. As a mapping base site for recovery effort and also as a center for the crisis mapping center of logistic support activity in case of a large-scale disaster, human & physical network is being established. OSMbasecamp for Resilience, which opens only in an emergency, has also established.

  • WiFi access
  • Power outlets
  • It does not have to be free, however, we'd appreciate if it is available for all at no charge.
  • Some location can provide mapping tools such as GPS.
