Are you familiar with setting up Mapnik and TileCache, and other
components of the OSM stack? Do you want to volunteer time to help
support disaster relief in Myanmar?
We’re urgently looking for one or two developers with time, right now,
to help set up OpenStreetMap infrastructure in Myanmar.
Due to network constraints, to start they require tile rendering
locally. They’ll be collecting data for OSM too, to provide very up to
date maps of impacted areas. OSM will be integrated with Sahana. This
system could very well be crucial in the relief and recovery efforts,
and a great benefit to the people of Myanmar.
Brett Henderson has been working hard setting things up. But we can
definitely use more help here. If you are interested to volunteer your
technical skills, get in touch with me at “mikel at osmfoundation dot
