Explain the basics of OpenStreetMap and present an inspiring example. This may be an in-person presentation, remote presentation via Hangout, videos, or a combination.
Mapping with your feet is a physical ice breaker, which introduces basic geospatial concepts. Participants are asked arrange themselves in the room according to where they come from. Facilitators should only provide minimal help. This takes a large enough open space for everyone to move about. Participants themselves need to figure out which way is “up”, how they are positioned relative to each other, etc. There will be lots of discussion, bumping of shoulders, repositioning. When everyone is stable, do a flip chart map drawing of the participants, and tape to the wall. We’ve made a map!
Now participants return to seats. Facilitators pass out paper and pens. Invite participants to draw a map depicting something interesting / important about their place. It can be as accurate or abstract as each wish.
Create a “map gallery”, participants tape their maps on a section of wall. Have participants examine each other maps, then invite questions and ideas from the group on each other’s maps.
Technical session on tablet devices. Participants log in to OSM; search and browse their home place; edit and take the iD walkthrough; and start adding features. Simply tracing a few buildings is a straight forward starting place. Facilitators would bounce among participants as they have questions.
Important: Make sure any changesets have #YALI in the comments so we can track and visualize.
Tandale and Binu Hub. Group may split in half to each site.
(If hosts have the logistical capacity, have the other half visit on the next day. Need to check on capacity for visit to Tandale and KINU.)
Continuation of technical session. Go deeper into topics, via LearnOSM.
Present mapping project life cycle, illustrate thinking process, and set goals.
Break out into small groups (of 4). Each group works to design together one mapping project; this could be based on one of the ideas from the map gallery yesterday. Each project needs to answer a number of questions, based on the the project mapping life cycle.
Each group presents. Q/A session.
Hearty invitation to keep working with MapGive. Time for Q/A and broader discussion.
