Registration is now open for the second annual HOT Summit 2016 to be held in Brussels, Thursday, September 22nd at the BTC Conference Center. This year's theme is OpenStreetMap, the Global HOT Community, and Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
We've just rolled out the start of a new documentation and design system for OpenAerialMap. Four main components make up the OAM ecosystem: an imagery browser, the catalog API, an uploader, and the tiler. The new docs, available at docs.openaerialmap.org, aim to centralize all the different pieces of documentation in an easy to access place.
From May 22-25, six HOT board members, staff, and volunteers will participate in the first ever World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, Turkey. The World Humanitarian Summit is a global call to action by the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. It will bring together governments, humanitarian organizations, people affected by humanitarian crises and new partners including the private sector to propose solutions to our most pressing challenges and set an agenda to keep humanitarian action fit for the future.
