Yes we are working on it,
I didn't have the time to share my last mission in Haiti (oct 2014)
withan OSM contributeur Presler Jean, an international hydrologyst and a
local group of Hydrologyst and agromomist (very short mission few days) .
We are trying to see the use of UAV in Haiti. As since 2011 we have
implemented several projects with IOM, Cartong, Drone Adventure and OSM
What we want is:
- To repair UAV (wing and quacopter) in the field with 3D printer and
- To be able to fly uav over the most affected area (inundation and
landslide) and get a strong methodology to use 2d inundation modeling
and extract the height of the building with the UAV elevation model.
Ideally to see if we can extract automatically the building without a
lot of data cleaning to put in OSM (need more test)
Why we are doing that:
- We want to reinforce the capacity of the OSM group who are in front
line with the local community and local government during a disaster or
during their daily life.
- Try to interact with NGO or people who talk about Haiti (in seminar,
workshop, etc…) at the same level to ensure some impact In the field.
For example, NGO/UN are still building Latrine in cite soleil when OSM
and local community ask them stuff (shovel,etc…) to help them to clean
the canal http://osm.org/go/YeSWUQfrV-
It will take time as we don’t have a lot of money and the control of our
communication, and in Haiti we will need first to support individual
and share knowledge during a mapping party our other to see a collective
All the best FredM
