Celebrating GeoAwareness Week with @atamerica


November 13th–19th is Geography Awareness Week. OSM GeoWeek 2016 calls on community groups, teachers, students, governments, private sector, map lovers, and motivated individuals around the world to come together to celebrate geography, spatial data and its usage especially in humanitarian response, disaster preparedness, innovation and economic development.

Over 120 events are organized around the world by institutions partnering with Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Organization (HOT), including Missing Maps, the U.S. State Department (MapGive), USAID (YouthMappers), the Peace Corps, National Geographic, and the World Bank’s GFDRR. OSM GeoWeek presents a great opportunity for community members to come together and learn to map to reduce disaster risks and to address public crises.

HOT is a worldwide nonprofit organization, registered in the United States [501(c)(3)] with offices in Washington D.C., USA and Jakarta, Indonesia. HOT Indonesia, together with @america, will celebrate the week for Indonesian communities by organizing a talkshow that can educate, inspire and increase Indonesian public in their awareness and participation on the use of open-source and open spatial data for development. We invite Geographic Information System enthusiasts, OpenStreetMap communities as well as HOT’s organization partners and university students as audience. This will become a great networking avenue for likeminded people who are eager to learn more on the best practices that enable public to contribute in enriching, developing, making use of and/or safeguarding data for development.
