When i am a tariner

Posted by Atikur Rahman atik on 13 August 2016 in English (English)

Atik

In 14 May 2015 i joined the #OpenStreetMap team as a mapper . That time i feel so much bad & think why i do this ? But after a long time with osm i learn lot of thinks. Now i am a osm map trainer . That’s why i know some common question’s answers . Now i share it for new comer who recently joined or want to be joined it .

  • Why Map ?

=> When you trace roads, buildings and houses on a Map that will aid in humanitarian missions. So..

  • What Can I Do ?

=> Join the community of online volunteer mappers. Make a powerful contribution with an Internet connection and basic computer skills, even if you do not live in the area you are mapping. Use satellite imagery to trace the outlines of roads, structures and land features for the creation of openly available data used to produce maps that help the humanitarian and development community.There are several ways to get involved and aid humanitarian crowd-sourced mapping initiatives. This site provides one such path.

  • Why OpenStreetMap ?

=> Through the Open Data Commons Open Database License 1.0 OpenStreetMap (OSM) contributors own, modify and share data publicly. There are many other free maps on the Internet, but most have legal or technical restrictions preventing others from using the data openly. With OSM both the maps and underlying data can be downloaded for free, for developers or anyone to use or redistribute. Additionally, in many places of the world where there is no commercial motivation to develop this data, OSM is often the best available resource.

so don’t think why and how, #just contribute data on it and help the world.

Thanks OSM for making this wonderful opportunity for us . Also thanks to BDRCS and Brother Ahasanul Hoque
