During our 2nd year at University for our Internship in 2016 we were privileged to work with the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) in Uganda to map Financial Inclusion in the capital Kampala and the Eastern part of Uganda. Through the project, we got to learn about OpenStreetMap and mobile data collection techniques. We got the opportunity to lead teams of other university students to collect the data, clean it up and upload it to OpenStreetMap.

The HOT Export Tool allows users to create custom OpenStreetMap (OSM) exports for various regions, by specifying an area of interest and a list of features. Within minutes, up-to-date OSM data is extracted for the area and filtered based on the selected features before it is converted from the native PBF file into other data formats. The Export Tool is currently undergoing renewed development to provide the OSM community with a tool to meet their data extraction needs. Numerous feature enhancements have been requested and an overall update to the software will improve its performance.

Flooding has had devastating effects and has displaced over 100,000 people. The HOT community is now using this imagery for response mapping.
