OpenStreetMap Bangladesh Community is proud to initiate “Dhaka Mega Mapathon (Map Your City)”
It is a daylong event. The event will start at 10AM with an introduction to OpenStreetMap Platform following with training session on how to add data and map remotely using satellite imagery. The event will continue until 4pm where we will require YOUR involvement.
Participants will be selected from that Mapathon to get a chance for a 03 days long in depth training for quality mapping and later become a part of the project mapping team. Participants will be honored with a certificate for participating in the Mapathon.
OpenStreetMap Bangladesh Community have been trying to fill up the missing parts of Dhaka city on OpenStreetMap with collaboration with different organizations for a while. However, as we all know Dhaka is a constantly growing Megacity and this makes tough to have it completely mapped at a time.
This time we are initiating “Map Your City” project to map the complete road network of Dhaka city to the block level including landmarks. It will make sure the proper navigation & routing possible for Dhaka using OpenStreetMap. We will also have Mapillary street level photos taken as a part of the mapping. We are fortunate that we have been able to get one of the emerging Tech Company of the country “pathao.com” empowering us in this initiative.
You will need to bring your laptop equipped with a mouse.
Lunch will be provided for the participant joining physically.
