Any people in the world can use free OpenStreetMap maps available online , Routing services or even put the Map on their Smartphone. For a disaster like this Nepal earthbrake, people who contributes from around the world more rapidly digitize the data from satellite imagery to support the humanitarian organizations that deploy to the affected countries.
And the goal of this project is to ” contribute to humanitarian relief by rapidly providing a detailed and accurate map (i.e., road network, villages, buildings, etc.) to support the humanitarian organizations. These services help locate people at risk efficiently, and facilitate the delivery of goods and services to remote areas.”
