Routing optimization in a humanitarian context
Routing optimization generally solves the Vehicle Routing Problem (a simple example being the more widely known Traveling Salesman Problem). A more complex example would be the distribution of goods by a fleet of multiple vehicles to dozens of locations, where each vehicle has certain time windows in which it can operate and [...]

Recently a new paper about Estimating OpenStreetMap Missing Built-up Areas using Pre-trained Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) has been presented at the AGILE GIScience conference 2019 in Cyprus.
Although built-up areas cover only a small proportion of the earth’s surface, these areas are closely tied to most of the world’s population and the economic output, which makes the [...]

Introduction
Exploring how OpenStreetMap data developed over time across different administrative untis might reveal interesting insights into the self organizing approach of the OSM communities and can potentially be used to derive intrinsic data quality indicators. It might even be possible to estimate the completeness of OSM for a specific key-value combination as done by Barrington-Leigh [...]
