The HOT community is made up of volunteers, local community leaders, and professionals committed to the mission of helping reach those in need through maps. This diverse group includes dedicated voting members, staff, contractors, volunteers, interns, and board members. Read more about different community members or learn more about becoming a part of the community.
Working Groups are at the core of how HOT organizes projects, supports disaster response, and functions as a community. Each Working Group consists of members across the community meeting on a monthly, bi-weekly, or weekly basis.
HOT offers a range of funding programs to OSM Communities in low- and middle-income countries with the resources they need to launch and grow their activities and impact. Learn more about the communities and work that have benefited from grants.
