Perkumpulan OpenStreetMap Indonesia (POI) is a non-profit organization dedicated to mapping activities to enhance community capacity and foster sustainable development through the open and accessible mapping platform OpenStreetMap.
Promote the use of open geospatial data for sustainable development and capacity building for community.
In 2011, Perkumpulan OpenStreetMap Indonesia (POI), a non-profit organization that emphasizes humanitarian efforts and capacity building using the FREE and OPEN mapping platform OpenStreetMap, initiated a project in Indonesia. The project aimed to promote awareness regarding the significance of spatial data in disaster risk reduction and to establish a local OpenStreetMap community.
In the span of 6 years, we have persistently worked towards encouraging the adoption of OpenStreetMap among community members through diverse training initiatives and regional mapping endeavors across Indonesia.
In 2017, we took a step further by establishing a local entity known as the ‘Perkumpulan OpenStreetMap Indonesia’ or POI. With the same objectives, POI is positioned further to advance the promotion of free and open geospatial data to address various societal needs in Indonesia.
