Goal Coordinate Efforts

OpenStreetMap has been shown to be an effective collection mechanism for infrastructure data. One thing that is lacking is the ability to coordinate workers surveying in the field or working remotely. The goal of the OpenStreetMap Tasking Tool is to make it easy for administrators to define collection areas of interest and collection workflows as well as allowing workers to easily determine what areas they should be working on.


The current application is the result of an initial work funded by AIFDR. It was imagined by the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team which contracted Camptocamp to initiate the work.

Then, the project continued to evolve on its own with the help from several developers.

The code is available on Github.
