Webinar #8: Crowdsourcing Data and Quality Control–The Experience of OpenStreetMap


Volunteered Geographic Information is becoming increasingly important in a number of scientific and development domains, and OpenStreetMap (OSM) is the largest effort to harness the power of the internet for crowd-sourced spatial data generation. OSM has more than 2.3 million registered users, and has mapped more than 34 million km of roads in all countries.

On 10 February 2016, Mikel Maron and Paola Kim-Blanco presented on the necessary and specific efforts undertaken to ensure the quality and accuracy of member contributions. A recording of Webinar #8 and the slides presented are available through its webpage.
