In 2019, the HOT community developed a Strategic Plan, which stated an audacious goal: to map an area home to one billion people in OpenStreetMap. But one key question remained: where?
The Audacious Project
The HOT community received funding from The Audacious Project, a collaborative philanthropic initiative that serves as a springboard for social impact on a grand scale. Over the next five years, this funding will enable HOT to scale up its support to local mapping communities with the aim of mapping an area home to one billion people, adding places at high risk of natural disaster or experiencing poverty.
What if we could map an area home to one billion people currently missing from the world’s maps?
We are honored and excited to announce that the HOT community is one of eight recipients of funding from The Audacious Project, a collaborative philanthropic initiative that serves as a springboard for social impact on a grand scale.
