Actionable Analytics: Real-time Analysis Using OpenStreetMap

Tyler Radford of the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team in the U.S. will develop an analytical tool to derive information relevant for malaria elimination efforts from OpenStreetMap, which is the largest crowd-sourced map of the world. OpenStreetMap contains information uploaded by volunteers and professionals on the location of features such as roads and health facilities. They will build plugins that enable users to analyze the distribution of malaria intervention strategies such as bed nets and health clinics, and identify regions that require more detailed mapping. They will engage with future user groups such as the Peace Corps to design and test the software.
