There is a progressive growth of the UniqueMappers Network Nigeria with the creation of new state chapters in various regions in Nigeria. The last state chapter that was created is the UniqueMappers Kogi in the North Central Region of Nigeria.
I am the State coordinator of UniqueMappers Kogi and by the instruction of Victor N. Sunday @ Viksun the National Coordinator of UniqueMappers Network Nigeria I created UniqueMappers Ibadan comprising of students and lecturers from Ladoke Akintola University of Technology and The Polytechnic Ibadan yesterday been 19th May 2020.
I created a WhatsApp group for training and coordination of UniqueMappers Ibadan. The members of the UniqueMappers Ibadan are enthusiastic with openstreet mapping/open data acquisition, ready to sign up with Openstreetmap (@ osm.org) and to receive trainings as OSMites.
We look forward to mobilizing more volunteers (youths, men and woman) who are enthusiastic of volunteering to add buildings and roads on Openstreetmap in Ibadan to join the UniqueMappers Ibadan in other to strengthen the State Chapter and enhance the activities of the openstreet community in the city of Ibadan. For each of the institution we will also train and affiliate them to YouthMappers as we grow and mentor them.
We look forward that this new team of UniqueMappers would be engaged with mapping task to tackle #COVID19 in Nigeria while the lockdown last.
