We want to provide an application
that allows EVERYONE
to collect geographical information.
We are a small team consisting of Bachelor students at the University of Bremen who are working on providing an easy to use tool for geographical information mapping.
The availability of geographical data is crucial for political and economical development. Unfortunately there are a lot of places in the world where this information is not yet available. So far collecting, editing and providing this information needs fundamental technical knowledge. We want to help change the current situation in making this process a lot easier.
Therefore we developed an Android application with which it is easy to collect new data for OpenStreetMap. Data4All is an OpenSource project that allows everyone to participate in developing it on Github.
You can take photos and trace everything you want to map directly on them; or you can save them in a gallery for future editing.
Our application allows you to edit maps provided by OpenStreetMap wherever you are. Directly on site or back at home.
Easily enter additional information about mapped objects for which we provide all of the commonly used tags.
Mapped objects will be added to OpenStreetMap soon after uploading. This helps a lot of people because many programs and navigation systems use this data.
We are students of the University of Bremen. We developed this application from October 2014 to April 2015 in the context of a Bachelor's project offered by the CapacityLab. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
