GISCorps calls for assistance for hurricane Harvey, hurricane Irma, and Mexico earthquake

HOTOSM tasks - Mexico earthquake Project is Active

Dear GISCorps HOT Volunteers,

We do not yet have specific project requests for Irma or the Mexico Earthquake, but there are very active efforts happening with our friends at HOT.

In addition to the Irma tasks we alerted you to a few days ago, there are now tasks underway for the Mexico Earthquake. HOT requested intermediate to advanced digitizers for the Mexico tasks due to the density of the buildings: http://bit.ly/MXEarthquakeMapping.

If available, please sign up with your name and OSM ID in this spreadsheet so we can credit your hours when the tasks are complete: http://tinyurl.com/y7jxbrye   

HOT has graciously offered to provide a training on using the JOSM editor tomorrow Sunday, September 10 at 10:00 AM EDT. If you would like to be included, please flag the training column in the spreadsheet above.

Please join the GISCorps Slack group for communication (#giscorps_hotosm channel):

GIS Programmer/Web App Developer - Hurricane Harvey Position is filled

Dear GISCorps volunteers

As the nation's health protection agency, CDC saves lives and protects people from health, safety, and security threats. They are actively involved in the recovery stage of hurricane Harvey and have contacted GISCorps to make a GIS programmer available to them.

The specific need is for a Python programmer with ArcGIS web map and app skills. Work entails downloading daily, data from a FEMA REST service of shelters, storing in a geodatabase, and developing a web map and app as a dashboard of the shelters depicting population over time.

Thank you,
