As part of the Liberia Local Empowerment for Government Inclusion and Transparency (LEGIT) project funded by USAID, we are working with stakeholders in the cities of Zwedru, Ganta, and Gbarnga, to map infrastructure and services, such as water points and health facilities.

After a successful round of mapping Surabaya’s infrastructures in three months, the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) Indonesia relocates to the country’s capital, Jakarta. Continuing the mission to provide lifeline infrastructure data for disaster decision-making support, HOT will map an area of about 661.5 km2, which is home to more than 10 million people. Jakarta is notorious for its annual flooding during rainy seasons, and having key lifeline infrastructure properly mapped and documented will allow for a more accurate urban contingency plan.
