Hello,

I've subscribed to this message list because I'm looking around to see if there is any organised UK group which deals with HOT projects. I believe this is a US based NGO setup to coordinate the use of OSM for disaster relief efforts after major events such as the recent earthquakes in Nepal.

Whilst I'd love to be doing OSM edits in my spare time I've been struggling to find time to get involved with job changes and children over the past 5 years or so. I would very much like to get involved with mapping for disaster recovery and my current employer permits us to take time off work for voluntary causes. I suspect they would approve of my doing a day to help the disaster recovery processes and it seems that HOT is the international group which organises that effort on OSM. In order to do this I need be able to explain to my employer what I would be doing and who I would be doing it for.

I wondered if there is a formal group for HOT in the UK and if anyone runs UK based training following the http://learnosm.org material setup by HOT?

Best Regards,

Paul Wittle
