Bangladesh has the highest number of slum dwellers – 60% of the urban population – in the South Asian region. This big number of population somehow stay unnoticed. During any disaster, for example earthquake, it’s quite impossible to help the dwellers of these slums.
Also having a mapping of slums will help NGOs and Govt to make proper decisions and plans for the development of those.
Under the umbrella of Global YouthFest, PreneurLab a “tech for social good” startup is hosting “Map the Slum” event on 16th October. 5 teams, each consisting 6 members, will visit the slums and map those using OpenStreet Maps. OpenStreet maps is an open source online service widely used in development sector. World Bank Group’s Water and Sanitation Program team is supporting the cause.
This will is an one day event. The mappers will get selected by online screening. Selected participants will be participating in a small training session. After that the teams will be divided and travel to the slums to collect data. After collecting data they will get back into the venue to upload them in to maps. Expert mappers will guide the whole initiative. Arif Nezami, CEO of PreneurLab says “Technology is a great tool to impact people's lives. We believe our participants will try to do their best to bring the slums into the global maps which will be very helpful for NGOs, Govt, ad doners.”Created by aHaSaN - Updated - Priority: medium

OSM Tasking Manager is a mapping tool designed and built for the Humanitarian OSM Team collaborative mapping. The purpose of the tool is to divide up a mapping job into smaller tasks that can be completed rapidly. It shows which areas need to be mapped and which areas need the mapping validated.
This approach facilitates the distribution of tasks to the various mappers in a context of emergency. It also permits to control the progress and the homogeinity of the work done (ie. Elements to cover, specific tags to use, etc.).
This version of the Tasking Manager is geared toward classroom instructors, or any other individuals leading a coordinated group in a team-mapping project.
