Che cos’è un mapping party?
Il mapping party è un evento in cui utenti esperti si riuniscono con utenti meno esperti, cittadini e chiunque voglia partecipare e contribuire allo spirito di condivisione della mappa e ottenere una conoscenza condivisa e ampia del territorio in cui si vive.
L’obiettivo del primo Torino Mapping Party è quello di coinvolgere i cittadini e chi vive la città a contribuire alle mappe OpenStreetMap utilizzate dal servizio di infomobilità Muoversi a Torino, con la raccolta e l’inserimento di dati e informazioni di pubblica utilità a beneficio di tutti coloro che vivono, lavorano o visitano Torino.
L’area oggetto di mappatura per questa prima edizione è il quartiere di Barriera di Milano.

Chi può partecipare?
La partecipazione è libera e gratuita fino ad un massimo di 40 partecipanti. Non è necessaria alcuna precedente esperienza con OpenStreetMap o con particolari tecniche di mappatura: i partecipanti più esperti potranno supportare quelli meno esperti.

SUMP Project Final Conference in Yangon, Myanmar

On Wednesday July 26th the SUMP Project turned to an end with its final conference, held at Main Hall of Yangon City Development Committee.
The SUMP project supported Yangon in improving public transportation by building institutional technical capacities, creating a stronger strategic planning capacity, facilitating access to appropriate technologies and encouraging community participation in public decision-making.
The conference had the aim to share the experience gathered during the two year implementation of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan project and to present its outcomes. It was attended by the secretary of Yangon City Development Committee, YCDC committee members, European Union Delegation, Italian Embassy and Italian Cooperation, Local Authorities (Township Administration, YCDC Township Administration), Traffic Police Force, Yangon Regional Transport Authority, Myanmar Railways, CBOs from project townships, Private Companies, media and other interested organizations working on Mobility and other Urban Developments.
In the final session of the conference participants, after having been informed about the activities implemented by the project, were able to debate with the Authorites about possible future pathways towards a more sustainable management of mobility in Yangon.
In a parallel event to the final conference, a “Mapping day” was implemented by SUMP project partners with the support of Phandeeyar and One Map. The topic was about uploading information on public transportation, street naming and public institutions to Open Street Map, a goal to be achieved with the support of voluntary mappers.

The italian TAST partecipated in a field exercise on the EU Civil Protection Mechanism

ITHACA participated in a field exercise on Civil Protection Modules within the framework of the EU Civil Protection Mechanism, joining the Italian TAST (Technical Assistance Support Team) of the Regione Piemonte Civil Protection Sector.

The exercise (Trimodex exercise 3) was held in Weeze (Germany) from 26th to 29th of May 2016, where a deployment of an EUCP Team, TAST and USAR modules in a country hit by a hurricane with pre-existing issues related to refugees was realistically simulated, as you can see in this video.
This was a unique opportunity for Ithaca to better understand the information management requirements (especially in terms of mapping and geographic information) in the OSOCC (On Site Operations Coordination Centre) as well as in the BoO (Base of Operations).
We would like to thank the Regione Piemonte Civil Protection for making this collaboration possible as well as all the civil protection volunteers that joined the exercise.
