Geospatial data is key for empowering citizens around the globe and to achieve the SDGs— if geodata is made openly available and easy to be put to use. The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) is in this regard coordinating and supporting humanitarian action and community resilience through open mapping.
The GIScience Research Group has supported HOT’s work [...]

The 16th ISCRAM conference took place in the city of Valencia (Spain). It succeeded again to gather an international audience of researchers that shared their work all around crisis management.
As ISCRAM is mainly interested in the support and intersection of practical application in crisis management and research, the focus was however again on another group [...]

This year, Sabrina Marx and Martin Hilljegerdes were teaching the block course “GIS 2” at the Heidelberg Center for Latin America (HCLA) in Santiago de Chile. The course is part of the international Master program “Governance of Risks and Resources”, offered by Heidelberg University in cooperation with Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and Universidad de [...]

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 [...]

Besides dealing with a snake, making quality assessments, or generating comparable statistics, one needs to know how to handle the whole functionality provided by the ohsome API to really become ohsome. And to achieve exactly that, this blog presents the last missing entry point to the API from the current toolkit, namely the /users resource. With its help you can receive aggregated [...]

Earlier we published several blogposts introducing the ohsome platform and its parts (e.g. the ohsome API for example, which was often showcased here in the blog) and its backbone the OSHDB (very recently version 0.5 was published). A recent open access journal article gives even more background to the system, as shown below:

Raifer, M, Troilo, [...]

Welcome back to a new episode of how to become ohsome. Yes, you’ve read the heading correctly. We are really talking about a snake in a notebook on another planet. If you are familiar with one of the most used programming languages in the GIS world, you might already know by now which snake is [...]

The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) has launched an activation to support humanitarian operations responding to the impact of Cyclone Idai. These efforts were already supported by more than 1500 mappers of the global OpenStreetMap (OSM) community that contribute geodata about the affected regions in Mozambique and the surrounding countries.
The team at HeiGIT (Heidelberg Institute [...]

We are always happy to support citizen science projects at the HeiGIT. HeiGIT/ GIScience efforts already range from tools that assess the data quality of citizen science projects (see, e.g., this blog post about “Plausible Parrots“) to approaches related to data creation, like MapSwipe Analytics (learn more here).
Currently, we are supporting citizen science approaches towards [...]
