Hi, this is a brief explanation of my contributions to the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) basing in Tanzania.

In July 2017, it was my pleasure to join HOT as a volunteer mapper where I was able to contribute to the project of Dar Raman Huria through tracing roads and buildings. The project aims to create map data which will be potentially useful in helping communities to prepare and escape from floods.

In the mid of February 2018, I was appointed to be a supervisor in digitization team. Within my role as supervisor, I have been ensuring the quality of the data provided by digitizers through revising their works done every day, creating tasks to be performed, taking statistics of digitized buildings or roads, preparing the payment sheets for digitizers after every two weeks, and reporting to the project manager about the progress of the work. As a supervisor, it is also my responsibility to guide the team and to understand the reasons behind why we are digitizing.

Here are the projects I worked on as a supervisor, Minigrid Tanzania, Minigrid Zambia, METEOR project and roads coverage in Indonesia.

Feel free to contact me through my email(s) or for any query.
