Improve OSM data quality Using MapRoulette Challenges (EN)
15:30 - 16:00
Perkumpulan OpenStreetMap Indonesia (POI), in collaboration with the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) and META, organized a data quality project in 7 countries in Southeast Asia and 1 country in South Asia to improve data quality issues in OpenStreetMap (OSM) from November 2022 until August 2023.
We realize that, as crowd-sourced data, OpenStreetMap (OSM) is reliant on volunteers from a variety of backgrounds to contribute and maintain the data. This causes an increase in the amount of data in OSM, which will affect the quality of the data itself. Being free and open, maintaining the quality of the data is imperative to ensure its various uses, especially concerning social and communal needs, may it be humanitarian needs as well as disaster preparation and prevention to succeed. With good information, every individual and community may utilize it to help them make better decisions.
The team has been working to track and solve data quality issues from remote mapping projects in MapRoulete. The tasks will be generated into MapRoulette's Challenges for all mappers. At the end of the project, we succeeded in solving more than 27,000 tasks and making 11,000 changesets. Spiky Building in Indonesia had the most faults, with 5,467 tasks fixed, followed by Road Name Gap Check in Vietnam, which had 2,790 tasks fixed.
