Building Maps, Promoting Community Mapping and ICT

MapUganda is a registered NGO working in and out of Kampala, across Uganda, and promotes community mapping, generates map awareness, actively pledges open data sets and builds a network of enthusiastic mappers in Uganda.

Most activities are set up around the global OpenStreetMap (OSM) project. We use various tools and techniques to execute our projects. OpenStreetMap is built by a community of mappers that contribute and maintain data about roads, trails, cafés, 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.
