This event will focus on adding Phnom Penh urban poor community information to OpenStreetMap. An example of this work is here: http://osm.org/go/4YiXywOOf- where you can see the footprints of houses in Boeung Kak.
We will upload the house footprints of over 20 urban poor communities that Sahmakum Teang Tnaut has surveyed and digitised in the past three years. We will also digitise the roads of these urban poor communities from the satellite image. If there are any landmarks that need to be added in these communities (such as markets or wats), these will be added as well.
Because this will involve importing data, you will have a chance to take your OpenStreetMap skills to the next level. We will use the JOSM program for this task, you can download it here: http://josm.openstreetmap.de/wiki/Download
You should also download the Open Data plugin for JOSM: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/JOSM/Plugins/OpenData#Installation
