GAMIFYING OPEN STREET MAPS (OSM) - MAPMAKER
A Use Case for Street Addresses for All (SAFAL) Project
This case study is a part of the SAFAL project which aimed at identifying and deploying a street addressing system for the unaddressed world using satellite imaging supported with on-ground efforts, especially in the emerging markets. There are many use cases and studies under this umbrella project which ranged from last-mile delivery solutions to emergency services. I worked on a few of these use cases, including this one.
Open Street Map (OSM) is an open and free to use community mapping platform. It’s important to populate location and geographical data on OSM like different territories, topographies, streets, and points of interest (POI) like banks, hospitals, restaurants, etc. to increase its usability. The idea was to build a platform that will bring in gamification onto this platform and motivate users to add more and more data points OSM. A GPS based augmented-reality role-playing mobile application is still in the ideation phase.
