Dear all,

As you know IOM is editing on the JOSM platform since 2010, especially for
a risk reduction project in Cite Soleil where we used JOSM  and then Arcgis
de make some analysis and map.

We are helping/organizing also Mapping party/training so far, or like today
helping to make GCP with GPS differential over Haiti, to improve the
georeferencing of a spot, image Mosaic for the country and available for

Today I have two question:

I – Building import on OSM

IOM staff and Cite Soleil local community group are digitalizing Buildings
(polygon) and collect basic information on the field (Building type, use
of, Nbre floor, Nbr of family, etc…)  for a project we have with the
national office of statistic (IHSI) Pre-Census on the 13 most affected
communes around 3000 Section d ‘enumeration ( 200 building each SDE).

Today, we would like to put all the building (polygon) we made in Cite
Soleil (risk Reduction Project) on OSM server (18 000), + Attribute with
the correct Tag.

Question:  How I can work directly with a OSM group to import massive data.

For the moment is only 18 000, but at the end IOM is working on more than
200 000 till December 2012, so we can discuss again for the rest, not sure

 I just need to show at least once example in Cite Soleil, and then use
this data from OSM to make some map, visualization on the web etc.

To convince people that it is important to share data and put it on OSM .
Especially when local community use also OSM for their own product, and
also available for Local government, NGO etc... But that you know already.


IOM is in charge of updating CAMP situation with his Data tracking Matrix
DTM (Close, Open, Total Population,…).

Every 40-60 days we are updating camp information.

Today we would like to see if we can remove the old camp and put IOM Camp
on OSM .

But how to update it on OSM every 40-60 days ( around 1200 camps, on 13
communes) in our data model we include a time series information to track
the change.

For me it is a layer you put on top of OSM on a web application with a
direct link with the database.

But we are ready to share as long we are clear with the workflow to update

So I have now answer for that, just some questions.

For any other information please contact me fmoine at iom.int

All the best Moine Frederic IOM gis officer
