Position Statement for 2021 OpenStreetMap-US Board election

Posted by frizatch on 23 January 2021 in Abkhazian (Аҧсуа). Last updated on 24 January 2021.

Hello All!

I made my first edit to the map in 2016 when I discovered OpenStreetMap through a Maptime group which I now organize. I guiltily admit I was unaware membership was an option for some time and didn’t officially join until a little over a year ago. Although I have few changesets to my name (most come from demos while I’m teaching others), I’m an enthusiastic supporter of OSM because I understand the immense potential of this project.

I work in an academic library on an urban campus as geospatial support for students and faculty. Through my position at the University of Colorado Denver, and through the MaptimeMileHigh meetup group I run, I spend much of my time introducing OpenStreetMap to interested mappers and data users. I have led HOTOSM mapathons for students and the community at large to introduce the humanitarian value of this unique crowd-sourced information. I enjoy seeing traditional GIS students get excited when they realize there is an entire world of the geospatial technology they’ve been missing.

Serving on the OpenStreetMap-US board, I hope to expand the awareness of OSM to students, faculty and community leaders as they work together using public data for public good. Through academic frameworks such as the Data to Policy Project (d2p), for which I’m the student and faculty liaison, OSM can shine as support for policy development. With more diverse contributors to the map recruited via community outreach and academic programs similar to d2p, OSM can be better used for research and evidence-based advocacy. With more people from different sectors of society understanding they can contribute data to the global dataset that is OSM, the more representative and complete that dataset will be.

I recognize the OpenStreetMap community is evolving quickly. Growing the community even more will require a solid organization and OSMUS seems to be on the right track. I am impressed with the work prior board members and our executive director, Maggie, have done in terms of transparency, finances, and norms. I look forward to supporting these efforts.

I am a scientist and outdoorsperson at heart. I have a degree in earth sciences, which led me to GIS hydrology projects, which then led to my geospatial career. As I mentioned, I’m now at an urban campus and my work is more human-centered than before. I’m excited to bring this background to help guide the U.S. chapter of the OpenStreetMap Foundation.

I’m happy to discuss anything that comes to your mind after reading my statement. Thanks for considering me!

IosonoCapace cammino di pace pellegrinaggio storico tra Trento e L'Aquila

Posted by mooji on 6 January 2021 in Abkhazian (Аҧсуа).

presentazione del progetto CAPACE ufficio turismo e cultura Alla cortese attenzione dei responsabili ufficio Turismo e cultura della vostra provincia: Oggetto: presentazione progetto CAPACE (cammino antico pellegrino attuale creatore economico) . Buongiorno , Portiamo a conoscenza al vostro Ufficio la realizzazione di un progetto di creazione del passaggio sul vostro territorio di competenza di un cammino di pellegrinaggio storico/culturale libero e gratuito chiamato C.A.P.A.C.E. Questo cammino sarà svolto in autonomia di tempo e data ed è svolto come scelta volontaria dai partecipanti . E’ la rivisitazione in fase attuale di un pellegrinaggio antico che è stato riscoperto nei documenti storici: ( LA PERDONANZA ,pellegrinaggio costituito da Papa CELESTINO V nel 1294 con arrivo all’Aquila onde ottenere l’indulgenza plenaria). Attualmente sono maggiormente conosciuti il Cammino di Santiago,cammino verso Roma, il cammino verso Gerusalemme Per suddetto cammino verranno utilizzati sentieri,pedonali,ciclabili, già in essere sul vostro territorio ma saranno collegati ad un percorso più ampio che comprende quasi tutto il territorio nazionale. Verranno segnalati con delle indicazioni di segnapasso (targhette ,edicole o tracce colorate) ,esse potranno essere associate a sentieri CAI ,o altre insegne già presenti,senza nulla togliere alla realtà gia presente anzi valorizzandone ulteriormente l’esistenza. I pellegrinaggi storici sono stati utilizzati nei secoli precedenti per scopi diversi e personali ed erano organizzati con informazioni accreditate dalla struttura ecclesiastica e sociale. Ora con la creazione di un sito WEB divulgativo anche per questo cammino ,verrà aggiunta una nuova competenza tecnologica per aiutare le persone ad eseguire in autonomia il percorso. Questo progetto stà suscitando sempre maggiore interesse tra le persone più sensibili verso la tutela, il rispetto e la valorizzazione del territorio nazionale come risorsa personale e collettiva. Certi di trovare la vostra approvazione ed il vostro interesse al progetto C.A.P.A.C.E. rimaniamo disponibili a fornirvi ulteriori informazioni ,come abbiamo già comunicato ai comuni interessati al passaggio del percorso. Inoltre auspichiamo la vostra collaborazione ,ed eventuale patrocinio o riconoscimento. Cordiali saluti CAPO comitato azione popolare organizzata

Leider nicht so gut ausgebaut die Wanderkarte in diesem Gebiet. Oder gibt es so wenige Wanderwege in diesem Gebiet? Wäre schön, wenn die Wanderwege dort mehrere eingezeichnet würden. Es ist soooo ein schönes Gebiet in den Stein-Fels -Bergen mit Grünen Matten und viele Alpen. Danke für mehrere Wanderwege einträge.

I attended the training organized by the Oyo Mappers Team (OMT) on February 5th, 2020. I was able to learn how to use OSM to map with the use of point, line and area. It really gained much from it and it was interesting and with this, I’m willing to join the Team.

My Map AddVenture

Posted by Harbisaur on 2 September 2019 in Abkhazian (Аҧсуа).

You can’t use an old map to explore a new world – Albert Einstein

In life there will always be an “add” to every “venture” of our own “Map”; experiences, knowledge, and people. I started using map during the time I got lost in the place I’m not familiar of back in college while doing school research. It was Google map who helped me locate the place I’m searching. Since then, it’s the only flatform in maps I used. Until OSM or Open source mapping was introduced to me. I learned that mapping through technology has wide-range capabilities. It isn’t only for locating places, it can also help people, individuals, most specially, communities who are in need during an emergency.

Mapping is a very useful device to explore more techniques that might help slum communities such as preventing threats and readiness in natural disasters. February of this year, a fire incident devastated the Badjao community in barangay 23-C. As I’ve conducted rapid risk assessment, I observed that the stability of the area has changed. The physical map or direction of walkways, locations of the houses, establishments and other features of the Badjao community were unidentified. With this, I’ve come to realized that a map should have an updates for every occurrence of change.

Opportunities add-up to experiences. When I was informed that I will attend to the Pista ng Mapa invitation, I was thrilled for I will have new experiences in mapping. Also, I felt anxious knowing that I will be expected to present in front of other participants. Nevertheless, I was more grateful for the Badjao kid who accompanied me in the event. He, himself, experienced the mapping and gained knowledge from an actual trial.

Curiosity and exploration add-up to knowledge. First day of the event was an enigma. I had a hard time deciding which activity I should join first because each of those was quite interesting and knowledgeable. As curiosity continuously arising, I’ve decided to explore to choose the topics that I don’t have knowledge yet. I joined the group where it discussed the “data story telling with open contracting data”. Through this, you’ll be able to analyse the discrepancies or any form of corruption in procurement. As the learning goes further, it gave me an idea that this application will be very useful particularly in BLGUs. The barangay will be able to easily track the expenditure of every allocated budget, especially, the infrastructure budget intended for the development of communities.

In addition, I had a personal interest in “human experience design for maps” activity. It entails on your specific interest in mapping, conceptualizing maps that might help on specific target. During the activity, I thought of conceptualising a map specifically for abused children. It will be a helpful flatform where they will be able to participate in reporting any forms of child abuse using mobile gadgets, laptops and other useful gadget that will reflect to the map. With this, workers specializing in child protection can easily monitor and respond quickly to the needs of the abused victim.

Furthermore, I’m truly amazed with the use of drones to map the area. It has great advantage in mapping a huge and complex area or community in minimal time and effort. Considering the community of Badjao, there are many areas that are difficult to access due to its broken walkways. I believe, with the use of drone, we’ll be able to create a map that covers the entire area of Badjao community. Also, we’ll be able to mapped-out all the possible emergency exits during disasters.

Lastly, coincidental interest add-up to acquaintances and potential partners. Thru mapping, I was able to interact with different people from different places around the country. I was even fascinated that just by having a similar interest; I was able to meet them. Every one of these people has different shared story. Some people from academe integrated mapping to their subject to help the communities; the humanitarians respond to emergencies and disasters uses maps, private companies provide services uses maps (grabb and ways) and every individual whose heart is in community development uses map.

Mapping is not only for direction or locating places, it’s also allowing us to explore all the possible ways to help and resolve.

Thank you #PistaNgMapa and Dumaguete for the wonderful experience. Hoping for Pista ng Mapa in Davao.

Toronto to Vancouver

Posted by kathrynmhodge on 4 January 2019 in Abkhazian (Аҧсуа).

It appears that the trip might be easier to travel through the US until Grand Forks, then travel north to follow the Trans Canadian Highway until reaching Vancouver, taking in Banff and Calgary along the way.
