> Hi everybody,
> My name is John Andersson and I am working for the Wikimedia Sverige. I am a
> big fan of HOT and I have been volunteering for a few years under the user
> name Jopparn. I also organized a mapathon here in Stockholm after the
> earthquake in Nepal.
> Now my organization and I have gotten the chance to do research on how HOT's
> open map data has helped humanitarians and what still need to be worked on.
> I am hoping to start this work after the Summer and would love to discuss
> this with you experts and perhaps also interview a few of you.
> Also, I am talking with Stockholm University and Mapillary about a joint EU
> application for funding for next year. (Mapillary is a Swedish company
> that's working on a crowdsourced street view, that I believe could be a
> valuable addition to HOT's work (as there license is compatible with OSM),
> and Stockholm University work a lot with ICT for development). This EU
> project could potentially bring in up to 2 million Euro for research and
> development for HOT. However, we need to get a better understanding about
> known bottle necks and find more European partners that have different kind
> of expertise in this field. If you have any ideas for good partners to get
> in contact with please share it here on the list or send me an email
> directly. The work with the application would most likely take place from
> September 2015-July 2016.
> Looking forward to your insights!
