Building Maps for the community
MapUganda is a registered NGO working in and out of Kampala, accross Uganda, and promotes community mapping, generates map awareness, actively pledges open data sets and builds a network of enthusiastic mappers in Uganda.
All activities are set up around the global OpenStreetMap (OSM) project. OSM is a map and database whereby the stored geographic data is owned by the contributors themselves: allowing everyone to view, create, use this information for free, in new and innovative ways.
In Uganda’s capital, increasing urban populations and changing land use patterns are creating new challenges for mapping risk in Kampala. The World Bank is currently supporting the Government of Uganda (GoU) through several mechanisms to increase resilience in Kampala and other urban areas by improving infrastructure and developing capacity.
