This web map is part of the development research that aims to provide a mapping platform for official and collaborative data, within the scope of disaster risk reduction (DRR), as this type of catastrophic events is increasing its frequency of ocurrence in the state of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) in the last years. The municipality of Maricá is the pilot area of ​​interest (AOI). The reader can also visit the dynamic map of this same area of ​​interest at uMap.

The mapping and development of the collaborative platform are coordinated by Dr. Raquel Dezidério Souto (IVIDES.org), in cooperation with a group of mappers of the YouthMappers UFRJ. To keep contact, please, send an email to ivides@ivides.org or answer this form.

The web map is being developed in WordPress and Leaflet Map and the initial list of layers is showed below. The web map has some background layers (WTMS) aplicable to this case (DRR mapping): OpenStreetMap, HOT-OSM (Humanitarian OpenStreetMap), * OpenTopoMap* and Esri World Imagery.

Congrats Raquel! I personally think that uMap is extremely useful, and it’s key not to make local governments dependent of an infrastructure they would have to pay for (and then typically lose after administrative time). I’ll be very curious to know if the experience is scaled/ replicated in other municipalities in the future. Cheers

Dear mapeadora, Thank you so much. Yes! FOSS is powerful and very important to the public administration too, because of the nature of the public data (public domain). It is worrying to include this type of data in private (not open) repositories. OSM appears to be a solution that meets all these requirements. And Maricá City is our pilot (initial) municipality. So, keep in touch for more news! Cheers from Rio! 🌿
