Humanitarian Open Street Map Team launches Tasking Manager V2

A map of Cameroon with the new version of Tasking Manager

In mid-July 2014, the Humanitarian Open Street Map team (HOT) launched a new Version 2 update to their Tasking Manager. This tool makes it even easier for people to contribute to the maps, giving them access to project descriptions on recent humanitarian mapping work, and to join in with the mapping by taking a task.

HOT launches kickstarter project for Haiti

The Humanitarian Open Street Map (HOT) team launched a kickstarter project to support the development of the first free Haitian Creole Open Street Map Book. Since the earthquakes in 2012 HOT has made OpenStreetMap the most detailed base map for Port-au-Prince available. Their map was used by search and rescue teams, the World Bank, the United Nations and other organizations working on the ground. However adequate training materials are still not available in Haitian Creole keeping Haitian locals from effectively using this free of charge resource.
