We are organizing an all kerala mapping campaign.The primary agenda is to add more content to OSM in the light of last flood It will be organized in 10+ phases.On each phase we will focus only on one set of parameter. The first phase will focus only on relief points like hospitals, schools and major buildings.
We are planning for 1000+ contributors. We will run a distributed call centre network to coordinate the activity. We have done the same call centre setup during last flood time.

Right now all the discussion are happening in whatsapp. We wish to coordinate it through our taiga instance. We wish to make even a layman to make OSM contributor. We will be using mapillary in the first phase. If you are are interested please inbox me your email ID. I can add you to our Taiga

@soorajkenoth You need volunteers on location, right? Are there things people can do remotely?

@sajith We need volunteers at both back end and ground. There are many things that can be done remotely.

We are planning to use the same model which we executed during the last flood time.

This is how we operated during the flood time.(Document available in ml,EN, Tamil, Arabic and Hindi)

@soorajkenoth Ok, thank you!

Would you post a note when you have more details?

My wife has a project in mind, to identify and map geologically risky areas. Seems that there may be areas where we can collaborate, even if not immediately. 🙂

@sajith Definitely. We can work together. We already made some documents. I waiting for someone to update it in the site after correction. I am getting you email ID I can add you to our taiga.

@subins2000 മംഗ്ലീഷ് സുബിന്‍ ആണോ?

@subins2000 ഹ!!!...

ഞമ്മളാ ആപ്പ് കണ്ടപ്പ തൊട്ട് അന്ന തപ്പി നടക്കണേര്‍ന്ന്. ഇതിപ്പോ സൂപ്പറായീ....


@subins2000 മെയില്‍ അയച്ചു. സര്‍ട്ടിഫിക്കേറ്റിന് ചില്ലറ പ്രശ്നം ഉണ്ട്. അതുകൊണ്ട് സ്പാമിലും കൂടി ഒന്ന് തപ്പി നോക്കണം. അതേയ് ഫോണ്‍ നമ്പറ് കിട്ട്യാ ബൌത്ത് സന്തോയം...

@soorajkenoth Seems like disaster risk minimization is one of the stated goals of HOT.

What Alan probably means is that you can start a thing like this:

Perhaps that is what you have in mind?


@sajith @soorajkenoth

And for some reason I didn't get a notification for the prior message, so did not respond earlier. Sorry.

@alanz @sajith No worries. I am very new to mastodon.We are from Kerala. Most of our communication and documentation will be in Malayalam. We are able to do communication very well. So we can take information from, but you may not from us.😉🤓😘

If I am getting your mail ID, I can add you to our Taiga instance as stakeholder. Also we would like to document our procedures, activities etc. in all possible languages.

@soorajkenoth Glad you want to help #OpenStreetMap. Did you see the Organised Editing Guidelines to help you along? 1000 people is a lot of people editing #OSM!

@rory Thank you very much for the message. I am not the technical person. I am just the man mobiliser.

There are few people from OSM community, like Arjun, Nikhil, Jason, Arun(the map man) etc. There are the people leading technical side. Let me check whether they have any mastodon account.
