Enabling up-to-date and accurate authoritative country mapping with crowdsourced geospatial data

Enabling up-to-date and accurate authoritative country mapping with crowdsourced geospatial data

SDG: 17 - Partnerships for the Goals11 - Sustainable Cities & Communities13 - Climate Action

As urban populations grow, managing urban growth in a way that fosters cities' resilience to natural hazards and the impacts of climate change requires detailed, up-to-date geographic data of the built environment. Crowdsourcing and big data such as OpenStreetMap offer an innovative, cost-effective solution. This grant will serve to equip the government of Sri Lanka with the required tools and processes to monitor new data collection in real-time and update national maps, systems that can be replicated in mapping agencies around the world.
