MapUganda would like to introduce its new Executive Director, Tinah Manduna Mutabazi. Tinah comes to MapUganda with extensive background and experience in the Information Systems and Management sector. Her experience in marketing Geographical Information Systems (GIS) software applications to Governance, Business, Utility and Transport Industry and NGO fora is another reason MapUganda is particularly excited to have her.

MapUganda is an independent non-governmental, not for profit organisation focused on growing the OpenStreetMap and Open Data community in Uganda and 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.

With Tinah's other background and mastery in strategic business development and business process systems for profit/non-profit organizations, as well as experience in initiating and strengthening partnerships, MapUganda will continue to be a strategic player in the Geospatial field and OpenStreetMap and OpenData ecosystems in Uganda and Africa.

Please welcome Tinah, and feel free to contact her at tinah.mutabazi@mapuganda.org
