One billion people live in places that do not appear on maps. Without maps, people are not even considered in critical decisions that will save or improve their lives. There is an urgent need for a free, open, and comprehensive map of the world. This problem manifests in two critical contexts: 1) Crisis response: When disasters and crises occur, humanitarians must quickly answer a set of basic questions for an effective response. 2) Providing essential services: Accurate, up-to-date data is a basic foundation for any development program.
Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) aims to create a world where every place and every person exists on the map. Our solution combines the latest technology with a global volunteer base, mapping vulnerable communities and putting data into the hands of decision-makers. With this open-source, up-to-date free and digital public good, information will be available to make better and faster decisions. As a result, missing maps will no longer be a factor in human suffering or loss of life.
