Please help contribute your expertise and time to the Humanitarian Open Street Map Team's efforts for this. This is a request for all  those who would like to contribute to the mapping response to be in contact with the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team and check for tasks set up at http://tasks.hotosm.org

Details of how we responded to the previous earthquake few weeks back at http://opensourcegeospatial.icaci.org/2015/04/mapping-response-contributions-for-nepal/

Thanks for your help.

Please come join the efforts to map Nepal as the country and many agencies around the world face the aftermath of the recent earthquakes. Students, professors, staff, or any others interested in contributing can come spend some time learning how to use the Humanitarian OpenStreetMaps Team task manager platform. There will be some food, and the product is able to facilitate better long and short term recovery.

At the end of the session we can see how much progress we have been able to make as a group so please come by and spread the word about how others can be helping from across the globe!

Email shanikadhettige at gmail.com<mailto:shanikadhettige at gmail.com> with any related questions and find out more about the mapping projects on http://tasks.hotosm.org/ <http://tasks.hotosm.org/> and www.nepalquakeaid.com<http://www.nepalquakeaid.com/>. If you have used the toolkit before and feel comfortable, the more teachers the better so please contact us.
