I am part of UNICEF’s global innovation team (throughout the world we are exploring how to use technologies to improve the lives of children & young people, looking at everything from basic mobile phones to drones: http://www.unicefstories.org/2016/03/14/malawi-tests-first-unmanned-aerial-vehicle-flights-for-hiv-early-infant-diagnosis/)) I am new to Malaysia but have had success working with OSM communities in other countries on these kind of projects in the past.
We are in the early stages of deploying one of our most exciting platforms here in Malaysia: U-Report is a real-time communication platform that enables youth to share their ideas & opinions for free via SMS, Twitter or an APP to create real-time visualizations that are shared with the public, media, government - allowing youth to influence social issues that matter to them. Currently more than 2 million youth in 20 countries are using the platform to speak about things like education, violence, employment etc & we are looking forward to kicking it off soon here. We’d also be looking to deploy the same open-source software to help with disaster relief in flood-prone areas in East Malaysia.
To do this well, we’d need to have an OSM map with levels 6,8 and 10 updated. Can anyone help with this (or direct me to someone who can)? I’d really appreciate it!
