OSM Training Results in Hasanuddin University

OpenStreetMap Training hosted in the Faculty of Engineering, Hasanuddin University was part of the University Roadshow programme in Indonesia. The final end of this training is to suggest the formation of OpenStreetMap communities in many districts in Indonesia, to train students in deepening their spike in using OpenStreetMap, QGIS, and InaSAFE, and to equip participants with skills necessary to become data collectors and data analysts that can later be used to work with Disaster Mitigation Agency in district level (BPBD). The training in Hasanuddin University was the first training to be held this year, pioneering the rest of the trainings in other universities.

The training lasted for three days, starting from Thursday, 5th June 2014 until Saturday, 7th June 2014. The opening remark was delivered by Bapak Syafruddin Rauf, a lecturer from the Department of Civil Engineering in Hasanuddin University. It was then continued  by the first session of the training covering the Introduction of Contingency Planning and Geographic Information System (GIS). The introduction was intended to clarify the flow of the training and the final results expected out of the training, which were to make participants understand the use of OpenStreetMap as data collector and QGIS with InaSAFE as data processor.

Having delivered the concept of contingency planning, the session was then followed by the Introduction of OpenStreetMap and how to conduct field survey to gather data. This session consist of several parts, which are:

1. Introduction to OpenStreetMap

2. Editing OpenStreetMap with iD Editor

3. Editing OpenStreetMap with JOSM

4. Getting familiar with Tasking Manager

5. Introduction to GPS and Field Papers for field survey

6. Intermediate level of editing using JOSM

7. Data validation in OpenStreetMap

8. Resolving data conflict in OpenStreetMap

9. Retrieving data from OpenStreetMap

Field survey was conducted on Friday, 6th June 2014, using GPS and Field Papers. Participants were divided into three groups to be deployed to three different areas. Each group was accompanied by 1 trainer. During this exercise, participants were asked to collect data for public facilities, such as hospitals, schools,  government’s offices, markets, et cetera complete with complementary information, such as the name of the building, height, capacity, access to its roof, as well as the address of the building. Following the survey, participants then needed to input the collected data to JOSM to be edited and uploaded to OpenStreetMap site.

In general, the training in Hasanuddin University went well and smooth. Participants were enthusiastic in absorbing the content delivered by the trainers. They were active in giving and responding to questions related to given materials. Participants looked forward to having the opportunity in implementing their knowledge in the future. This training would also be continued with QGIS training to be held in the coming September 2014.

As seen from the graphics above, there was an increase in participants’ overall mastery in the given materials. The average increase was from 67.67 to 84.67, with all questions tend to being answered correctly in the post-test, except for question about the sequence in mapping using OpenStreetMap. This results together with other forms of evaluation can be used to better OSM’s training programme, with more emphasis at making sure participants understanding in collecting and processing data in OpenStreetMap.
