About us





Who we are

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. OpenStreetMap is built by a community of mappers that contribute and maintain data about roads, trails, caf├ęs, railway stations, and much more, all over the world. OpenStreetMap emphasizes local knowledge. Contributors use aerial imagery, GPS devices, and low-tech field maps to verify that OSM is accurate and up to date.
