- Mapper since:
- April 14, 2010
My name is Lucy.I have a passion for mapping because it is important for my community to know what is happening around them.To me spreading geographical information is very important for the changing world.
I started contributing on OpenStreetMap since the year 2010 and also got the opportunity to be a Participant of Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team’s Data Quality Internship. This was a twelve week full time internship between September and November 2021. It was supported by Meta and included training from Mapbox, OSGeo and Kontur. It involved in-depth training in a wide range of geospatial tools including JOSM, iD, RapiD, Overpass Turbo, OSMCha and OSMose. Together with 18 fellow interns we validated a large amount of OpenStreetMap data across twelve countries to ensure its readiness for disaster response and field mapping activities.
