      <br>
      Let's take the example of Managua. The public transport map there
      has been done by the local community without any help from HOT
      Inc. nor any activation. However HOT Inc. helped then by giving
      it's name and organizational structure in the crowd-funding
      campaign and that is why there has been a connection, which is

                <br>
                great, that you are going to write a case study! <br>
                <br>
                Yes, in the communications working group I've mentioned
                this some months ago, and I've heard a couple of times
                that people wanted to outreach to the partners to write
                such a case study. Until now there hasn't been any
                input, yet. And that's the reason why I'm asking on this
                list for more help to get good stories on results made
                using OSM data improved through HOT's initiatives.<br>
                <br>
                Please help out if you have been doing or you are in
                contact with anybody who has created a cool
                product/result!<br>
                <br>
                BTW, if it would be because of me, I'd make it a (not
                too tight) condition, that people who use the data for
                the good, share their success story with us :)<br>

                      <p>Dear HOT-community,</p>
                      <p>It is important to show the <b>outcomes</b>
                        HOT has leveraged. This helps us for the
                        inspiration of people and organizations about
                        the possibilities of Open Data for humanitarian
                        activities and also for our fund-raising
                        efforts.<br>
                      </p>
                      <p>We usually communicate results as news on the
                        website, such as statistics of activations (how
                        many mappers participated, how much data was
                        collected, what extend was mapped, how many
                        people effected, ...) and this is good!</p>
                      <p>But we also want to show <b>tangible outcomes</b>,
                        to answer the questions, what this data has been
                        used for. Especially our partners, or
                        communities that used the collected open data to
                        produce impacts and products based on the data.
                        Therefore I've created a showcases section on
                        the website: <a class="m_-7996248551085607717m_8744183829814754852moz-txt-link-freetext" href="https://hotosm.org/showcases" target="_blank">https://hotosm.org/showcases</a></p>
                      <p>Unfortunately there aren't a lot of good
                        examples, yet, and I'd like to invite everybody
                        who has a story to share to contribute to this
                        effort. Once we have good content there I'll
                        link the showcases to be visible on the
                        website's general pages.</p>
                      <p>If you have an account on the website (which
                        you should have as a HOT member) you can add a
                        new showcase by visiting this link: <a class="m_-7996248551085607717m_8744183829814754852moz-txt-link-freetext" href="https://hotosm.org/node/add/showcase" target="_blank">https://hotosm.org/node/add/sh<wbr>owcase</a><br>
                        In case you don't have the permissions to do so,
                        or you don't have an account but want to
                        contribute with a showcase, please write me in
                        private.<br>
                        <br>
                        Please try to make it short, visual (pictures!)
