My #MapaTime experiences

Posted by nclnnmclld on 18 February 2020 in English (English).

I really have an interest at doing some kind of stuffs like this because i grew up with my little laptop and i have some experiences doing something on it. The session is really good use and helpful because it is entertaining and fun while you are helping others to identify schools just like what we made.But of course at first it may look so hard because you don’t have an idea doing it but after attending 5 sessions i can already consider it as an easy task. So i really do enjoy helping and doing this MapaTime. I have learned that mostly schools in rural areas are really hard to find and sometimes does not really identified as school because here mostly public schools are have some what similar by the colors or the structures of the schools but then in the remote areas that is not easy to go you cannot easily find schools with the help of this session we are now aware and most likely can help others to find those schools whenever they need it especially when there is a natural disasters and they need a shelter to evacuate. My favorite is when we are challenging each other by our points and how many schools we did. And i guess i would like to help and work as a volunteer when it is related to this.

Hello nclnnmclld,

it is nice to see that you and your co-students have fun in using and improving OpenStreetMap charts. Since you seem to enjoy helping people in need I would like to mention the humanitarian open street map project to you and your mapping friends. If you did not learn about it in class you might want to have a look at https://tasks.hotosm.org/ where even as a beginner you have the possibility to support international help organizations conquering disasters and virus outbreaks by mapping in OSM.

Kind regards and all the best to you all from Germany, HeBri
