Open Mapping Hubs

The Open Mapping Hub - Asia-Pacific is working to create a sustainable OpenStreetMap (OSM) ecosystem in Asia-Pacific. We work with open mapping organizations and communities in the region across 25 countries to expand and deepen the open mapping work in the region to generate meaningful data and promote its effective use.

We aspire to see government, humanitarian and development agencies commonly using OSM data in their planning and decision-making. We are also committed to providing funding, training and support, and to promoting the active participation of underrepresented groups and individuals in the OSM movement.

The Open Mapping Hub - Eastern and Southern Africa works with organizations and communities across 23 countries in creating and updating free, editable and shareable open map data in OpenStreetMap. We believe that open map data is universal and contributes to identifying problems, monitoring change, managing and responding to events, forecasting, setting priorities and understanding humanitarian and development trends.

We envision a future where all people in Eastern and Southern Africa have the opportunity to contribute to and use open mapping processes and open data in their everyday lives.

The Open Mapping Hub - West and Northern Africa engages open mapping organizations and communities across 24 countries in the region to facilitate the exchange of ideas and expertise across the region, and provide financial and technical support to massively scale local edits in OpenStreetMap (OSM).

We stimulate and strengthen the leadership of communities to protect their livelihoods, improve their resilience, and preserve their way of life by promoting social justice in accessing open data and free software for their own purposes.

El Hub de mapeo abierto - América Latina se encuentra en la “Fase Alpha” ¿Qué es esto? Es una etapa previa en la cual estamos diseñando y probando actividades que, no sólo aporten valor a la gente, sino que también ayuden a HOT, las comunidades y otros actores del mapeo abierto de la región a colaborar juntos y así co-diseñar lo que un Hub de Mapeo Abierto al servicio de diecinueve países de América Latina podría ser y hacer.

Esperamos en el futuro inmediato pasarle la antorcha al Hub y entregarle una sólida red de relaciones a distinto nivel en toda la región, un grupo de proyectos realizados o en ejecución que demuestren el valor que puede aportar el Hub a las comunidades, y por ende una creciente reputación positiva. También unos modelos probados de colaboración que luego el Hub podrá optimizar y sumar a sus propios modelos.
