The OpenStreetMap Foundation and You: The Why, The How and What You Can Do to Get

OpenStreetMap is now 11 years old. Over the past years it has grown from a small niche project to one with a large global community. Businesses, non-profits and individuals depend on OpenStreetMap to provide a "free map of the entire world." Few know about the small volunteer foundation that supports the overall OpenStreetMap project. The OpenStreetMap Foundation (OSMF) serves to support the OSM community by providing the base legal and technical infrastructure. Compared to the size of the overall community the OSMF is quite small. This talk will explain what the OSMF is, how it operates and why you should get involved.

The Map is a Tea House

Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team and OpenStreetMap collectively inspired over 7000 contributors for the Nepal Response. The community survey results are in. This session will share some insights about the future community of communities with HOT and OSM. What can we do to support the map as a 'global tea house' that welcomes everyone and build the community together? How can OSM better share stories around the world to show the amazing activities near and far?

Crisis Mapping Japan

Crisis Mapping is a volunteer activity designed to offer immediate, detailed mapping of the critical areas following natural disasters or infection outbreaks. The project is known as OpenStreetMap.

In the past, the projct’s crisis mapping activity followed events such as the 2010 Haiti earthquake, the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake / Tsunami, the 2013 Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, the 2013 massive mudslide in Izu Oshima island (Tokyo), the 2014 Ebola outbreak in the West Africa and the Hiroshima’s disasterous landslide in the same year .

OpenStreetMap Japan is staffed by business people, who may sometimes encounter scheduling conflicts due to other commitments.

The CrisisMappers Japan ask international organizations, such as World Bank, Asian Development Bank, and Google to support their activities. Crisis Mappers Japan team works as Japan’s team for Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT), and as Japan team for the global network Crisis Mappers.org. The members also engage in other activities relating to crisis mapping, such as Ushahidi and UAViators.org.

State of OpenStreetMap Indonesia

As we know, the OpenStreetMap (OSM) is already widely used in emergency response in some parts of the world. For example in Haiti earthquake in 2010, Typhoon Haiyan in Tacloban City (Philippines) in 2013, the West Africa Ebola Response in 2014 and Nepal earthquake in 2015. OSM roles to map the exposure data on the area affected by disaster. Then how about OSM in Indonesia? Can OSM be used to map exposure in Indonesia?

That question actually becomes the background of Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team in Indonesia (HOT ID). The program of eligibility to use OSM for exposure data collection in Indonesia was started with holding Jakarta’s infrastructure mapping competition and helping the local community to transform handwritten paper map to digital map. The next HOT’s program is providing OSM training to the person who engaged in disaster management (governments and NGOs) in several disaster-prone areas in Indonesia in order to utilize OSM for their needs in collecting exposure data. HOT also provides QGIS training (open source software to process spatial data) and InaSAFE (QGIS plugin to calculate disaster impact).

The training is not only held for the government, but also local NGOs and even for students at 13 universities around Indonesia in University Roadshow program. Through this University Roadshow program, HOT has the goal to establish local OSM communities. Every university that has been trained will establish an OSM community in their region. By providing training to students, the opportunity for establishment of sustainable communities will be greater. It is because the students’ big curiosity about something new and they usually have a lot of friends or study groups so that they can share their OSM knowledge and produce new innovations using OSM Data. One of the great results that have been achieved is disaster prone area of Mount Slamet mapping using OSM held by Jenderal Soedirman University as their Community Development Program topic.

Another example of OSM developments in Indonesia is exposure mapping in Semarang City conducted by community-based organization, Hysteria. This community mapped all buildings and roads in Semarang City using OSM, then they use it as a basemap for Community Resilience Map in Semarang. The map itself use Ushahidi platform for the reporting.

OpenStreetMap community in Indonesia continues to grow. HOT also provides discussion forum on social media such as facebook group, twitter and website for community interaction. Started from Desember 2014, HOT ID also held monthly community meetup for sharing, mapathon, short training and initiating new things about OSM in Indonesia.

OSM application for disaster risk management in developping countries in Asia and the Pacific

Information collection for disaster risk management is a challenge in developping countries in Asia and the Pacific. Lack of basic information such as base maps and disaster damage information leads to the ineffective planning of disaster risk management and resposne.

In such places, OSM is important sourse of information. Asian Development Bank (ADB) with the support of Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) focused on this value and applied it in the disaster response activity for Typhoon Haiyan which hit Philippines in 2013 and started new technical asssitance in Armenia, Bangladesh, Fiji and Philippines to introduce space-based technology and ICT including OSM to community based disaster risk management in each country.

Satellite Imagery, OSM, and ICT for Disaster Response

With more and more technologies and sources for the disaster response, volunteers can now participate and contribute in many ways wherever they are. How ICT tools can be leveraged alone with satellite imagery for disaster risk reduction, post disaster response, recovery and reconstruction even with the bad data connection? Can those ICT tools collaborated well with local OSM community, and be able to provide a better insight for the government agencies and the international disaster responding organizations? This talk is going to start an open discussion to this possible synergy and deliver some potential practices for the near future.



查近年來網路發展,行動(Mobility)與互動服務(Web 2.0)已與民眾日常生活密不可分,2015年SafeTaiwan以「行動服務」為核心持續發展,將提供訂閱、推播、分享、通報等互動應用,持續朝「官產學研民」共同協作之目標邁進;目前已先行推出Beta版上架於Google Play供民眾使用,可供查閱即時的颱風、地震、道路通阻、土石流、淹水…等災害訊息,iOS Beta版本亦將於9月中推出,敬請鎖定SafeTaiwan官網掌握最新消息。



社群媒體已成為近年來新興溝通工具之一,由於其有資訊快速傳遞傳播的方便性,因此常被運用到防救災的領域上。例如歐美國家就常運用twitter簡單訊息的傳遞特性,作為災害發生預警與災情傳遞的工具。另外,在災害發生後,也可蒐整過去在網路所發送的相關訊息進行災害行為分析。例如日本311地震發生後,田中健一(Project 311,2012)運用社群媒體的訊息,抽離出相關關鍵字詞,並分析每個關鍵字在地震發生後,不同時期出現之比例,並從中找出災害之特性趨勢,例如電車各站災害發生時之狀況等。另外,網路的普遍性已成就了許多災害期間共同協作的成功案例,透過擁有共同技術的人,共同協助可快速完成原本耗費多時的工作(鄧東波,2012)。 共同協作,在防災應用的典型案例為2010所發生海地地震,以及2015年發生的尼泊爾地震。透過開放性網路共同協作平台,可完整呈現當地震後的地圖。本文將介紹目前國內災害防救社群網路資訊應用狀況與未來發展方向。

飲水地圖:民眾 + NGO + 社群的協作計劃

2015 年我們在台灣開放街圖社群提出這個構想後,很快地得到社群的支持與幫助,也有許多熱心的民眾表達關心與協助意願。本演講將回顧目前為止的計劃成果,分享串連起民眾、NGO、開放社群三個稍微不同的使用者族群的經驗,以及本計劃未來的走向。



開放街圖上臺灣的圖資隨著參與者多而累積越來越多了,圖資與參與者多的狀況為資料品質把關帶來挑戰。本次演講列出資料QA的方法與面對的挑戰,像是用既有的QA工具,還有OverPass API糾出圖資的問題,搭配相關工具像是Level0修正問題。眼前最大的挑戰是臺灣政府的新授權規範。data.gov.tw上的政府資料有不少筆轉換成 CC 授權相容的規範,會有不少筆資料能大規模匯入開放街圖資料庫上,怎麼與既有的資料整併將是QA的挑戰。

Field papers在田野調查的教學與應用

臺灣的開放街圖(OpenStreetMap,OSM)建置,近年來已有顯著的成果,其透過群眾共同創建的協作式數位地圖特質,不僅具有由下而上的草根性特色,也是一種社會網絡的交流媒介。OSM目前不僅已廣泛應用景點導覽、災害防救等功能性的地圖運用上,在教育現場也逐步發展為地圖教育乃至於田野調查的輔助工具。OSM特有的繪圖活動(Mapping Party),可促進繪圖者與在地社區的交流,也強調田野現場的觀察與紀錄,若同時搭配GitHub計畫為OSM所開發的Field papers地圖印製服務,可為傳統田野調查工作,提供嶄新的地圖標記工具與後續加值服務。

本研究以東華大學暑期密集通識課程「東台灣田野調查」的教學為例,闡釋Filed papers導入田野調查教學現場的方法與成果。研究成果顯示,相較於GPS等行動數位地圖的操作,學生在田野現場中藉由手繪標記Field papers輸出的OSM紙本底圖,可更有效掌握地景的位置與地理學中的空間基本概念,並在標記與校對地圖中獲得更多的成就感。另一方面,Field papers所提供的OSM線上編輯、圖像套疊之延伸功能,也提供學生在數位地圖編輯的室內上機學習機會。若能廣泛將Field papers納入田野調查相關課程中推廣,將可進一步改變目前OSM僅由少數人協助繪製、更新的困境,不僅可以降低OSM資料蒐集與繪圖的門檻,更可將OSM帶入不同領域的應用範疇。


「出走 · 地圖」 - 開放街圖融入高中地理實察活動

地理實察是學習地理觀念、體會環境的多樣性及複雜性,進而培養學生解決地理問題能力的最重要程序。因此現行的高中地理課綱裡頭,明確指出希望培養學生:「能積極參與課程相關活動,並有能力規劃戶外地理實察內容」的核心能力。而地理實察的活動設計,多半是利用現有地圖,著重在觀察環境,記錄實察資料,最後整理出實察心得。在這樣的過程中,地圖僅是單純的背景,而學生的觀察結果也僅止於課堂報告,不易於分享。開放街圖(OpenStreetMap, OSM)的出現落實了Web 2.0中自發性地理資訊(Volunteered Geographic Information, VGI)的觀念」,註冊使用者不論在何時何地,只要連線上開放街圖網站,就可以協助創建或編修地圖,而且編修的成果幾乎是即時呈現在全世界網友的面前。尤其當智慧型手機或平板電腦多半已整合定位功能,如:全球導航衛星系統(Global Navigation Satellite System, GNSS)、行動電話基地台、無線網路存取點等,消費者等級精度的地理資訊已經唾手可得。因此本計畫透過一連串的教學規劃,以開放街圖製圖為顯性目標,指導高中生帶著手中的智慧型手機或平板電腦進行地理實察,紀錄校園附近地區的點、線、面圖徵,回到教室後再以最容易取得使用的iD編輯器進行製圖。根據在國立華僑實驗中學及臺北市立南湖高級中學的實施經驗,學生對這樣的地理實察方式都感到高度興趣,而且由於參與了製圖過程,會更加瞭解地圖的意義,也對地圖產生更高興趣。另一方面,由於製圖過程必須鉅細靡遺,因此學生必須來回穿越大街小巷仔細觀察,也使得學生重新認識學校周邊地區,加強了學生的歸屬感與地方感。儘管有些教學現場的限制仍無法突破,例如:地理科授課時數不足以應付實察活動,必須以額外活動方式辦理,但整體而言,仍可作為高中地理教師重新思考地理教學方法之參考。



兩年多前開始在成大資工系開授自由軟體開發與社群發展的大學部選修課,目的是希望讓本科系學生或外系有興趣的同學認識自由軟體的世界,進而參與到社群發揮貢獻,課程邀請到多位不同社群的神人們做介紹,並引導同學們實際操作。其中開放街圖OpenStreetMap就是每學期會安排的主題,學期中會帶領學生們進行區域性地圖繪製或參加Mapping Party。這學期開始我們也希望地圖繪製能跟在地的需求結合,因此,文化的府城及生態的岡林將會是OSM在這學期的延伸應用。
