Hola Rafael:
ahhh you are the best!! I was thinking I will have the time for doing the
transcripts until 2017  (just kidding!) Re. the Import project for Mexico I
just wrote a Blog, please find it here http://bit.ly/importproject. Also it
will be in WeeklyOSM. Please find the full transcription below from Rafael
with the two small parts that were missing completed.

Hi Oleksiy,



You are correct I start speaking a bit later but I thought it was very
important to watch the previous minutes because other speaker mentioned
OpenData and then the President mentioned he knew someone who supported the
efforts for mapping Hurracaine Patricia was in the audience ;)

Enrique Peña Nieto:

Quisiera sobre esto que ha comentado Alejandro a propósito de los datos
abiertos, que se puede utilizar toda la información que genera el gobierno,
y que varios de ustedes puedan desarrollar distintas aplicaciones o
utilizarlas para interés particular... No sé si está aquí, me dijeron que
venía alguien que había desarrollado o había apoyado este alertamiento que
hubo con el huracán Patricia el año pasado... Acá! Desarrolló precisamente
a través de datos abiertos lograron apoyar y dar información a quienes
estaban en las zonas de riesgo. Yo solamente quiero agradecer aquí porque
es un ejemplo que ilustra mucho lo que se puede lograr y creo que además
usan información abierta.

Míriam González:

Tocando al punto del huracán Patricia... Sí, Míriam González, bueno... me
presento también. Éste... trabajo para una compañía de Silicon Valley que
se llama Telenav, pionera en la navegación GPS. También soy emprendedora y
también soy [parte del] "humanitarian digital network". Entonces, estamos
colaborando con varias cosas al mismo tiempo.
Dentro del humanitarian OpenStreetMap, que es donde colaboro ahorita para
cuestiones como puede ser el huracán Patricia vimos una oportunidad muy
buena... gracias también a Ania y a Alejandra para poder usar la
información que estaba ya liberada del INEGI, y gracias también a eso
hicimos una mejora del mapa libre de México através también de todo lo que
se liberó. Lo que hemos encontrado -y lo comento también como usuaria- es
que hay todavía detalles en la información, todavía se puede mejorar más,
todavía se puede limpiar más. Y eso también me gustaría comentarlo con Ania
y también con Alejandra para de alguna forma ver cómo podemos también ser
unos inspectores de calidad de la información que se libera para que no
nada más se suba y se suba y se suba y digamos... México es uno de los
primeros y de los mejores a nivel cantidad, queremos también calidad de la
información abierta para también poder tomar decisiones y también poder
saber dónde mandar a una persona, a una herida, a un resguardo, poder
también volar a una persona que tenga alguna cuestión también, un terremoto
como el de Ecuador, que también se ha liberado también información, todo
esto para poder apoyar a al CENAPRED (Centro Nacional de Prevención de
Desastres) y también apoyar a más mexicanos para que sean menos tocados por
desastres.

Enrique Peña Nieto:

Muchas gracias. Pero es cierto,  todavía hay mucho por hacer pero sin
embargo hay que reconocer que México es de los países, creo que el primero
de América Latina que logra tener una información abierta que está
permitiendo pues esta aplicación, la de que varios más y muchos que nos
están quizá viendo a través de Internet puedan utilizar para proyectos a
desarrollar de forma propia.

Míriam González:

Así es. Muchas gracias por eso, por el tiempo, y creo que es muy importante
que hagamos algo en conjunto también con sociedad civil para poder ir
mejorando cada vez más los datos que están liberados.

Enrique Peña Nieto:

Muchas gracias.

Enrique Peña Nieto:

I'd like to know about what Alejandro has just talked about, about open
data, that you can use all the information that is provided by the
government, with which some of you can develop different applications or
use them for your personal interest... I don't know if she is here, I've
been told somebody has come who has developed or supported this alert that
we had for the Patricia hurricane last year... There she is! It was
developed in fact with open data and information, with which you could
support and give information to those that where deployed in the risk
areas. I just would like now to thank you, because it's an example that
ilustrates very well what we can achieve, and I think that you also use
open information.

Míriam González:

About the hurricane Patricia... Yes, Míriam González, well... I also
introduce myself. I work for a Silicon Valley company called Telenav,
pioneer in GPS navigation. I am also an enterpreneur and also [part of]
"humanitarian digital network". We are collaborating with several things at
the same time. Respect to humanitarian OpenStreetMap, that is where I
collaborate right now for projects like the Patricia hurricane, we've seen
one very good opportunity... thank you also to Ania and Alejandra for
letting us use the information that was already released from the INEGI,
and also thank to that we could improve the free map of Mexico using again
all data that was publicly released. What we found -and I comment that also
as a user- is that there are still details (inaccuracy) in the information,
that can still be improved, it can still be cleaned further. And I also
would like to comment that with Ania and also with Alejandra for, in a way,
see how we can become a Q&A inspectors of the information that is released,
so information is not only uploaded, and uploaded, and uploaded and...
Mexico is one of the first and best about quantity [of released open data].
We would like quality Open Data too to be able to take decisions, and also
where we need to send one person, one injured person, to a shelter, send by
plane also one person in need, an earthquake like that of Ecuador, where
information has been publicly released too, all this to support the
CENAPRED (National Center to prevent National Disasters)  and also suport
more mexicans so they aren't harmed by disasters.

Enrique Peña Nieto:

Thank you very much. But it is true... I think that there is still a lot to
do, but nevertheless we have to recognize that Mexico is among the
countries, I think the first of Latin America, that has the data open that
allows this use, that also some others and many people that may be watching
us through the Internet, may use this info for projects on their own.

Míriam González:

That's right. Thank you very much for that, for the time, and I think it
would be also important that we join efforts with the civil society, so we
can keep improving the data that have been released.

Enrique Peña Nieto:

Thank you very much.
