What do you like about OpenStreetMap Africa?

OpenStreetMap Africa is a network of local OpenStreetMap communities from all over Africa with an intention of joining hands to share resources and collaborate to grow and produce a complete and well-detailed map of Africa on OpenStreetMap in order to advance the quality, completeness and sustainability of geospatial data in Africa. Join us as we map out Africa! About OpenStreetMap Africa - HackMD


OSM Africa brought us (African Countries) together and we share ideas, tips and knowledge on how we can utilise the data. It’s also important because we help each other map different countries. :hugs:


OSM Africa is one of the biggest open portal for not only contributing to a common cause of improving geospatial data and making available for utilization, but a also a platform for us as humans to interact, build our selves and purpose towards building Africa and our local homes countries


That’s true, and thanks to communities and countries that come forth to help each other in the growth of open map data


I love to get perspectives on participating in OpenStreetMap that aren’t from North America or Europe. I appreciate that OpenStreetMap Africa makes an effort to share that experience so we can learn from and make it easier. Thanks for being here!


Thank you @iandees, hopefully, this new platform will bring more of those perspectives out.
