Training materials and tools


CartONG holds remote sessions twice a week, these sessions are an opportunity to train new volunteers in remote mapping and editing tools in OSM.

CartONG has also produced its own training documentation (only available in French for now but soon in English).

For mapathons we mainly use the HOT Tasking Manager. Beginners start with iD editor but we encourage and train our volunteers in using JOSM by organizing regular JOSM training sessions.

Data quality control


In the past years, CartONG has built a team of experienced contributors. We meet during remote validation sessions once a week in order to verify the quality of the contributions produced during the mapathons. These sessions help improve the quality and consistency of OSM data whenever necessary.

CartONG has also added an extra step to the data contribution and validation process. Once the validation is 100% completed, we proceed to an overall validation of the entire mapping area. This additional step allows us to homogenize the data & tagging and to better organize the different elements that have been mapped, in particular the road and hydrographic networks.

Remote Training and Validation sessions take place on a regular basis. Join us on Mondays from 6 to 8pm (UTC+1) for mapathon and on Thursdays from 10 to 12am (UTC+1) for validation sessions. You are welcome to join any time, feel free to register directly on our Eventbrite page or to contact us at missingmaps[at]cartong[dot]org


Activity overview


Only the activities linked with OSM organized editing, i.e. editing the OSM database, are listed. Most of our projects also include a capacity building component, as well as data analysis (map edition, webdmap development), and often awareness raising on open data and collaboration. To find out about these components, please check the links in the "Additional information" columns.
