ABOUT

Mapping Day Uganda is a fast growing project which organises mapping events, implements local trainings, 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 whole world allowing everyone to view, create and use this information such as street maps for free.
