2018 Community Webinar Series - Thank You!

Russell Deffner-3

Season’s Greetings everyone!

 

We hope you are somewhere safe and warm right now, or when you are, maybe you will want to catch up on all the great presentations we had during the 2018 Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) - Community Webinar Series:

  • January: We kicked-off the year with a webinar from our Executive Director, Tyler Radford, who gave a brief review of 2017 and the plans for HOT in 2018.
  • February: A much needed training on Validation tips and tricks from Matthew Gibb.
  • March: Started our ‘reports from the field’ presentations with HOT Turkey.
  • April: Followed by a presentation from several of our field projects in Tanzania.
  • May: Tried a new collaboration with the Training working group with a JOSM for beginners training.
  • June: We invited an expert, Dan Joseph, to tell us how OpenDataKit and mobile data collection works.
  • July: Was a special series of webinars from our Micrograntee communities
    • There were 5 topics: Gender, Youth, Data, Advocacy and Inclusivity
    • Unfortunately not all recordings worked, but there are two on the HOT YouTube.  
  • August-October: Took a break to focus on the HOT Summit and other in-person events.
  • November: Followed our collaboration with Training WG for an Advanced JOSM training.
  • And December we took off to celebrate!

 

We felt this year went so well, nearly maxing out our webinar capacity a few times, that we are already working hard to make sure 2019’s webinar series is just as good, if not better!

 

So far, we have our January webinar already scheduled… it will be a really good one with a presentation from our field operations in Uganda! Register now: http://bit.ly/HOTUganda

 

Then for February-March, look forward to a presentation on what HOT is doing with Machine Learning, potential upcoming changes to the Tasking Manager, and more about current HOT technical development. Also we have invited Heidelberg University to tell us about their recent work with OpenRouteService or Mapswipe, or any of the other fun things they are doing around OpenStreetMap. And, the Training Working Group is currently scheduling more frequent, and maybe additional, training topics this year. So potentially look for more than just one webinar per month in 2019.

 

From the Community Working Group and everyone at HOT…

Happy New Year! We look forward to having you at our webinars and trainings in 2019!

Thank you Community Working Group!

For all of you reading this message - it would be great to hear your ideas and requests for live training/webinars in 2019. Perhaps you have a topic or expertise you'd be willing to share or present on. Please feel free to share ideas here or send to the Community Working Group.
Best
Tyler
