Free Training Oppertunity for Students on Open Street mapping
Along with GFDRR (https://www.gfdrr.org/) as part of their OpenCities initiative (http://opencitiesproject.com/cities/dhaka/) we are hosting a half day hands-on training session on the crowd-sourced OpenStreetMap platform on Saturday 2nd November from 10 am to 2 pm at the World Bank Office (E-32 Agargaon, Sher-e-Bangla Nagar) covering the following:
- OSM Basics: How it works, it’s many uses & opportunities … as well as it’s limitations.
- OSM Excursion: An outdoor exercise to collect data using a clever tool designed to simplify geographic data collection.
- OSM Editing: The process and the differences with traditional GIS editing.
Grateful for confirmation of your participation to Tahsina Akbar on firstname.lastname@example.org . This will be a practical ‘hands-on’ session so we would request you to please bring your own laptop.
Thanks kindly, Mark
