October 28, 2013, by aHaSaN, category General Science, GeoTechnology

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:

  1. OSM Basics: How it works, it’s many uses & opportunities … as well as it’s limitations.
  2. OSM Excursion: An outdoor exercise to collect data using a clever tool designed to simplify geographic data collection.  
  3. OSM Editing: The process and the differences with traditional GIS editing.

Grateful for confirmation of your participation to Tahsina Akbar on tahsinabd88@gmail.com  . This will be a practical ‘hands-on’ session so we would request you to please bring your own laptop. 
Thanks kindly, Mark
