Humanitarian Maps for Refugee Crisis EU

Hello Hungarian OSM community,

we are a small group of OSM mappers from Central Europe, some of us also volunteers from the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team. In response to the refugee crisis taking place in Central Europe we have decided to create up-to-date maps of refugee camps for humanitarian organisations and NGOs working on the ground. The data will include information about location, capacity, equipment, housing and operator. The goal is to improve logistics, distribution of food and medical care.

So far we have mapped in Hungary, Germany and Austria but we would like to focus on southeastern European countries. That´s the reason we are reaching out to you. Everybody is welcome to map, no matter what skill level.
