Nice to meet you!

I’m Michael Montani, a GIS consultant at United Nations Global Service Centre (UNGSC). Here I work as coordinator of the crowdsourcing activities of the Unite Maps program.

Formerly, I’ve been co-founder and president of PoliMappers, the first European chapter of YouthMappers. It also seems I have a MSc in Geoinformatics Engineering at Politecnico di Milano.

I map in Africa since 2016, being constantly in touch with other mappers all over the world. In 2018, I have been awarded of the 2018 YouthMappers Research Fellowship, for which I conducted a research project on the usage of OSM data to control an endemic disease in Senegal with crowdsourcing, on-site capacity building and machine learning.
