GIS Mapping & Drone Technology
A mapathon is a coordinated mapping event. The public is invited to make online map improvements in their local area to improve coverage and to help disaster risk assessment and energy management. Mapathons use an online site for storing map data, for example, OpenStreetMap (OSM). A mapathon is organized by a respective organization or a non-profit organisation or local government. Organizing mapathons is a fantastic way to build a community of mappers all focusing on the same area of the world. It is also a great learning environment, where new mappers can learn from the experiences of others.
ICFOSS is contributing to Open Street Maps as per the requirement from Government of Kerala for its Mapathon Initiatives. The project is a part of creating extensive local maps of Kerala including physical infrastructure natural resources and other information that are useful for planning and other developments.
