Dear Friends!

If you ever wanted to talk to the folks who point satellites and share
with them and hear from others the impact open data has on your
volunteering, your work, your community, etc today is a great chance.

12:00 Noon EST
17:00 GMT

DigitalGlobe who enable and enhance so much of our work with their
satellite imagery, are hosting a "Twitter Chat" today about #opendata.

And it is not just DG who will be there, the Director of the UN Office
for Outer Space Affairs Simonetta Di Pippo will be there too! How cool
is that?

How can you participate?

Well, that is a good question. I am a total twitter newbie, but I am
told you just need to "follow" the twitter hashtag #opendatachat and
then to ask a question or make a comment, you just tweet and include
that hashtag at the end #opendatachat

This link will let you "listen" in at least:
https://twitter.com/search?f=tweets&vertical=default&q=%23opendatachat

If you google "twitter chat" you will find lots of info and some
applications that make being part of a twitter chat easier.

I look forward to "seeing" you there and figuring out how to do this
twitter chat thing along with you!

Cheers
Blake

Hi Pete,

Congrats on your success making mapping more a part of MSF's work and
on the new gig!

One of the very best things about volunteering with HOT and Missing
Maps has been the opportunity to meet, hangout and work with you and
through your efforts support MSF's incredible work.

I am so glad that you will stay a part of the HOT community.

Best wishes
Blake

Hello all, I hope you are well...

Apologies for using the mailing list to send a personal message, but I feel
like (and hope) it isn't inappropriate.

My time as coordinator for Missing Maps at MSF is coming to an end - last
week I accepted a new position within MSF working on innovation process and
how we better approach field problems and opportunities. I wanted to let
this community know personally for a few different reasons....

Firstly, to say thanks for the education. It has been an absolute pleasure
to work with such a varied bunch of dedicated, passionate and clever people.
I have been an MSF fanboy for a long time and I am now a HOT and OSM fanboy
too. My job over the past two and a half years has been to try, as much as
possible, to find the overlaps and opportunities between these two (very
different) organisations and communities. As I hope you have noticed, I have
tried to connect the dots between what the HOT and Missing Maps community
can do for MSF and the impact that that volunteering has on real people
(both our staff in the field and our patients). What you probably don't
know is that I also evangelise HOT / OSM within MSF - not just for the
mapping, but for the principles of openness and teamwork and sharing that
make mapping and collaborating on such a scale possible.

Secondly, because you should know that what you have accomplished during
this past two and a half years through HOT activations and Missing Maps
projects is pretty unprecedented in MSF. Operational people and medical
people within MSF now *expect* to be able to rely on Missing Maps and HOT to
deliver data for decision making in the places we work. The quality of your
work and the dedication you show (often at very short notice) has taken the
project from a suspiciously viewed, disruptive, unorthodox and often
misunderstood project in MSF into a tool that the people delivering aid on
the ground value and want. That's huge.

Thirdly, I appreciate that there are massive challenges ahead. Discussion
started by Fred on validation is high up that list. As is the scale of the
supply and demand from organisations like MSF. As is how we leverage the
data these organisations are collecting on the ground as part of their
day-to-day to enrich the OSM database (but including how we do that in a
resposible and sustainable way). I have no doubt that together we (I fully
intend to stay a part of the HOT community despite the change in day job)
can address these challenges and whatever comes after. I would like to offer
this opportunity to feed back to me any thoughts you may have on the future
of Missing Maps and MSF or any other feedback you may have.

Lastly, there is going to be a very cool job available at MSF UK. Not an
easy job by any means (the phrase jack of all trades doesn't do it justice),
but a massively fulfilling one. Knowing the talent available amongst you,
I'd strongly encourage you to take a look when the job is advertised.

That's it really. It's not goodbye by any means and I look forward to
continuing these discussions beyond the end of my MSF Missing Maps job...
Apologies for the lack of brevity!

Cheers,

Pete

Hello mappers,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the mapping you
are all doing. As we are celebrating women and girls in the month of March
and for the rest of the year, let's support women by training more women
and girls and also mapping facilities that support women. We are supporting
this year's theme BE BOLD FOR CHANGE.
