Randy Jones Field Supervisor [Volunteer] Humanitarian OpenstreetMap [HOT] Ramini Huria Project

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Ramani Huria is a community-based mapping project that began in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, training university students and local community members to create highly accurate maps of the most flood-prone areas of the city. As the maps have taken shape – their benefits have multiplied and their potential magnified, now serving as foundational tools for development within all socio-economic spheres beyond flood resilience.

I am recently arrived to the world of humanitarian mapping after experience in the private sector. My first assignment was in Sierra Leone as Project Manager of a pilot project for WAMM 2017 (West Africa Motorcycle Mapping 2017).
