In the coming weeks, I will be doing a field mission with the Humanitarian OSM Team. My mission is to assist government and communities to use and adopt open technologies and community mapping approaches for disaster risk reduction.
This isn’t the first time I’ll be doing long periods of field mapping in challenging environments, but, this is my first to work on a foreign country composed of a team of recognized community mapping leaders within their respective countries. I have very little expectations as I know very little of the country and field conditions we will be deployed.
If there’s one thing I hope to gain from this experience, that is to look at what I do on another PERSPECTIVE.
I will try to post my thoughts in this blog or the official channels as we go along.
Wish us luck!
