Drage kolege i kolegice,

 

Nepal treba našu pomoć!!! Pod inicijativom Informatičke sekcije Studentskog zbora Geodetskog fakulteta Sveučilišta u Zagrebu, sutra, u srijedu 13. svibnja 2015., organizira se Fast Forward OSM (OpenStreetMap) radionica na Geodetskom fakultetu u Zagrebu (Kačićeva 26, 1. kat, predavaona 117), na kojoj ćete čuti nešto o OpenStreetMap-u i Humanitarian OSM Teamu te naučiti osnove kartiranja u OSM-u u svrhu kartiranja Nepala kojem je potrebna naša pomoć!

 

Kao što svi već nažalost znamo, 25. travnja 2015. Nepal je pogođen nizom prirodnih katastrofa – potresa, od kojih je najrazorniji bio onaj magnitude 7.8 po Richteru. Danas je Nepal pogođen ponovnim nizom potresa, među kojima najjači magnituda 7,4 i 6,2 po Richteru. Epicentar je bio 82 kilometra od Katmandua.

 

Free, collaborative maps are uniquely valuable to humanitarian work, especially in places where base map data is often scarce, out of date, or rapidly changing. OpenStreetMap is a project to create a free and open map of the entire world, built entirely by volunteers surveying with GPS, digitizing aerial imagery, and collecting and liberating existing public sources of geographic data. The information in OpenStreetMap can fill in the gaps in base map data to assist in responses to disasters and crisis.

 

Za radionicu nije bitno što studirate, koja ste godina, znate li se koristiti OpenStreetMapom. Nikakvo predznanje nije potrebno. Ponesite samo laptop i punjač, sve ostalo ćemo proći zajedno, u svrhu pomaganja Nepalu. Svi taskovi koje ćemo raditi su prikazani na OpenStreetMap Tasking Manageru.

 

OSM Tasking Manager is a mapping tool designed and built for the Humanitarian OSM Team collaborative mapping. The purpose of the tool is to divide up a mapping job into smaller tasks that can be completed rapidly. It shows which areas need to be mapped and which areas need the mapping validated.
This approach facilitates the distribution of tasks to the various mappers in a context of emergency. It also permits to control the progress and the homogeinity of the work done (ie. Elements to cover, specific tags to use, etc.).

 

Vidimo se!!!
