UW students use open source mapping to aid relief efforts in Nepal
Half a world away, University of Washington civil and environmental engineering students trace the outlines of roads, paths and buildings in Nepal from their laptops.
Using open data software OpenStreetMap, the students in assistant professor Jessica Kaminsky’s Civil Engineering in Developing Communities class joined an online community effort to turn satellite imagery of Nepal into maps and aid the earthquake relief effort. These digitized maps provide emergency responders and relief coordinators responding to the 7.8 magnitude earthquake and powerful aftershocks in Nepal with critical data to guide teams deployed on the ground.
