Effective Education for Disaster Risk Reduction - Learning Matters.
I have just spent a couple of hours mapping a grid area in Nepal, so First Responders and Rescuers know here
to look and how to get there...especially important in rural areas. Using my laptop I have mapped tracks, footpaths and residential buildings as many main roads already mapped. You can do the same: take some time to #map for #NepalQuake @hotosm Task 190 http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/190 You need a laptop and internet connection - There is nothing stopping you!!
Once you are at the site, you need to either create an account, they send a conformation e-mail and then you should be able to log in. You will need to have cookies enabled. I work on a mac, so I had to download Java runtime too. Once logged in I used 'Edit with iD’ which runs in the browser without need for anything else. The first time that you log in in takes you through a simple tutorial and then yu can edit freely. You will need to zoom in quite a long way to both see what has been edited previously as well as what you can add. I have been adding footpaths, tracks and residential buildings and areas.
Please help if you can!
