The focus of the meeting was on collaborative mapping and crowdsourcing
ITHACA, together with more than 20 experts in the field of Satellite Emergency Mapping, participated to the IWG-SEM meeting in Bonn on 28-29 May 2015, with the goal to further consolidate cooperation mechanisms during the different phases of Emergency Mapping. The focus of the meeting was on collaborative mapping and crowdsourcing, with ad-hoc presentations from Tomnod, HOT-OSM and ImageCat. For ITHACA it was also an opportunity to strengthen the relationship with HOT-OSM.
The annually rotating position of official Chair of IWG-SEM was handed over from DLR to UNOOSA (more details here).
