minded hidden them here with look on read both come from George Washington versity in watching DC and women for last years uh incorporating a module assignment of poetry that in with the JET just so you been to have stayed that of seen presentation on um how we how we do that we talk about a little bit but then since so the map and people made this year plus 6 months a lot has progressed In through developing how this contention views of much too much broader audience you know that your 1st of to you know corporate this if you want be impressive displays of sectors to actually bring those your angioplasty of interest in doing that so Mr. officers off talking about what we've done a little bit and and a lot of little of more aware and you're going and it's a pretty cool interesting stuff so I said that women who
Carrano standard classifier for last few years start with 1 class in 1 instructor and cell grown to at least 4 5 classes each semester so 2014 constrained false matches our summers sessions but I'm uh
summer comes this year will probably have a 20 students altogether different trick into a sense here when we do it's policy mostly 1 into dose and it's a voluntary basis and people simply do what they on the job we want more on runtime policy during the last room we have more of a captive audience right they don't know say that there a sector volunteers I guess the mean von told this is doing and moment where we approach it is it work the partner and listed here so the partners of the part of the work of the last few years and and the which is always work for work very well and aluminum across USA state just under their about support from each you state different by giving a symmetry news trees from named a project included find folks at the World Bank as well those works really well they have a sort of collaboration and the students the and so what a user was in the classroom maps and for most people you're think matter very not know the massive replicable regressor disciplines and more more people in different sponsor are realizing this we see that our classrooms now individual students from to lessons we appeal from a business school international affairs public health public policy distance and the disciplines a relation that 0 decision marketing is comportment and the rebuttable to our work so awesome is a great way to start introducing people are going into the people involved with geography and mapping and so they can recognize that they can you know use some tools to help them to recover storing understand some of the the actual better when there's um the so here we have and where do we we do it as it was was having a party of some indigenous service-learning aspects as well so not only are they just know contribute to this larger project director working with a partner and having a partner I'm really has some practice for students of the relation and not just doing this for myself or for grade it's actually you know popping somebody at a minimal country you know that this design their disaster was a response or the evacuation plans and things and is also an isolated from the rest of the work on a project with the World Bank with US aid and with the just 1 what the end having this kind of skills the see in New Source worlds surnames this model and dual of a lot of uh a lot employers are looking for some sort of open source could build skill set by people on servicer interesting and uh to this in this matter yeah yeah yeah so when we what bring infinite this is typically have evolved from to Banja basis in the class of like iterations something to think about and so these are the things that we serve to we need to go through our heaven going through lot of years and and to sort of make it a workable Simon amateur run smoothly of Sunni to picture a similar work right you begin great for this agenda is inputs to work that Sandoz right us to be fair and but the real world over the FIFA tracing features some locations are more densely populated of than others so you need a sort of identify sometimes if some there are some areas may be more difficult to do these things we consider that and now we have read about the do we divided put up to a certain grids of Americans agreed to do or do we say alright residue to other features and you have to do you know roads buildings modern art but then because this open collaborative platform we have to find a mechanism to prevent people from overlapping but on the petition effort because obviously if I did it as building and then know next door realize I did it digitized it just same once the given error so these are the things we have to sort of figure out how to make things work smoothly and we also need to track who did what obviously uh medial find ways varies in quickly to identify all the information that Jimmy has created a cell is created so the market and going to this will also at the level that station and quality control to the and to to the countries the since May 2 yeah the very quickly
from our workflow but working with um changed lost partly because it's about better more used to uh to doing this as well as technologies change as technology changes actually meetings like the easier for us so basically forcing you do is find area map if or work with apartment we have been uh this who areas chosen for us essentially but even still nutritionally of investigated how much information or inflected in in that area of line OpenStreetMap only on how much exists the interview amusing is it's perfect values that hazy you good quality imagery of these kind of things are mostly to set up on ministers and testing managers care about and was a problem or above that a few years ago to help people collaborate more effectively essentially 0 sounds great for getting a bunch people to work on Monday uh from many literally that people in no country
it the enable us to open up to thank much broader audience ch initially when the 2nd 1 class is an intermediate JS fast theories understood concepts of topology and then to the chasing in 1 idea the he browser editor for those sound very easy insular nuisance e to that assumes have included and with this and we intra-class is an intermediate advanced classes involved is right only for grading we use the open source of state of of a pastoral pizzeria find specific of features and still has a has done we can query using a website that most of funds it was been done
and another thing that we like to do is likely to find a way to engage students having a partner come in and talk of students delivery before the project starts where the ads and where some have to occur the realize OK this is not a pair that I did class I get back from the bottom drawer desk it's suffer goes a lot of world that in matters because these people are working with people in Indonesia in Colombia where they're actually using this information to you know that for disaster preparedness so actually really matters so to get a modest speed we introduce a multi 207 general we introduce them to on natural workflow what they have to do and how to use the editor Tom how assigned the information of the image work that have to do and then we actually get and the use of pastoral track role wonderful and then let's similar to do is actually have a mapping party of comes down to it and tracing digitizing isn't real sexy work and we have another prospect of 300 buildings purpose of structure it's like OK discounted you know tiresome fast so we have proposed mapping primate optional but we were pizza bringing you know constrained my screen and play music Anderson sort of of even more collaborative environment also helps us to work together so too time-consuming is amount of inventory of redundancies are whereas the building actually and forwards role really go so semantical pairs of eyes help you figure out exactly what you need to do and help you to make a better product and that's an
original so as retreat said this started as a pretty small endeavor with me kind of fiddle around with different offers to see how you could comprehensively assigned something like this to people without having overlap and people getting frustrated or parts of the city being blank and and it definitely has improved as the technologies that matters this is our 1st mapping party was a pretty yeah small affair I think we maybe had
anywhere from like a dozen 15 students
and this is where we're at now and we typically do this on a friday mid semester and over a course of 4 hours we will have over 100 people come through and a lot of the other faculty in our department that are not GIS people they're not you know taking it all their human geographers and they've got so into this so common in take training beforehand is like 1 of our faculty dragged her husband and and we have this huge grouped is
working together music company when a lot of students actually not the assignment out during that mapping party because they're like rather command work my friends have a laugh you know you slice a piece of mind professor and we have bodies everywhere are conference room are allowed to to a lot of professors opened offices in that like people work at their desks so it's a really at the good sensor community and our partners typically will actually come come visit and when we do these and you see this like a bunch of adults and running around some of the guys in USA AID the guys from not box right across a lot of our friends we work in the area they'll just coming to be that you know and the over the shoulder and extra guidance for the students so that that's a real kind of a winner in terms of engaging students so what the new stuff
the stuff we want to talk about today that you know have isn't just our project and how we do it is this notion of that teacher and so and in the last few months at a bunch of like minded people got together and said OK there's all these instructors out there they're starting to do little as models are assignments in a class different layers levels of complexity and you know you have a basic geography classes like we're using the main but then you have people in other disciplines some people rolling in into cartography and may be taking it and going further but with all this wonderful information and the spirit of open source should be not share the materials that we used to teach with other instructors we're increasingly seeing again at our mapping parties some of our faculty will bring their friends were faculty in other departments into these parties and we've had several requests so you know from it was is 180 from public health she really wanted do this in my you know what epidemiology class we you buy something put it together really short link all our stuff and then we realized OK so there's a lot of things that we do that we take for granted we've done this and after we can just hit the ground running a project of 400 kids in inside a week but if you're not a job offer or a GIS person you know how you going to get your head around this and so the idea for t Joyce was born to be a resource for instructors so that they could add collaborative mapping projects and to the to the class so Richard and I and taking the 1st Bashir putting the content together we have a lot of it developed already so it's taking a lot of the materials that we developed to use in our class the stuff that we give to our students and then also some extra instructor resources and we hope to go life photography Awareness Week which is run November 16th and we can hope that we be there today but we're not quite there we we we've but some ready to go so what is going to be what's going to sit on teacher OSNs so look pretty much all the materials we hope that would be required to to help the instructor at pick out the area identify and investigate the area that they're going to work and how they're going to do the often it to their students how they manage the project as it progresses and also how you graded you know if your from a different discipline public policy have you ever agree topology probably not do you know what it means popping up so explaining those things in a very practical way because again you're working with students and we owe it to them for this to be equitable and we have to have a very kind of open the way in which we graded OK so that they you know no way to get the grade that they do so and status set design and aids for the instructors so how they can customize their work at the workflow that we developed how they can be at work for them so we can a taking our workflow maybe stripping it then we definitely have an interest in disaster as disaster response because that's my background Emergency Management Richard is also the model working years working a biased towards those stories and but that's not going to be for everybody you may have a high school teacher that once for students to map the local neighborhood so it's gonna be a lot more interactive to me involve walking papers and things like that it's an element
that we have obviously not included in our so different options for how you can build that assignment your class again degrading techniques that we use the rubrics and what we discovered in a different kind of experiments over time we have found that actually recording demos interactive demos for our students to use and putting them on a teaching websites there really handy because he might do that a general class and you know all them by next week Billy is kind of forgotten how to do it and it's much easier for him to maybe sit back and go through that little interactive video that we made then write a big long e-mail were like well without the good way to teach instructor to so we can write out all these instructions we also show them how we go on to tasking manager set up a job how we investigate in the area to determine high low medium density show them how to trace and what we mean by good topology making that visually it's an awful lot easier so that's a lot of his stuff the word you're currently making right now and then a lot the training materials that we use like we do it training class the format of funds for really teach the students they're part of the workflow of how will all fit together why it's important so all that material again we've taken that tennis scrubbed out our preferences and we will put that and teach so professor can take it and make it their own and we use it so they don't have to reinvent the wheel of the assignments and then more instructional videos of US teaching students that they can use if they want to and then the 1 thing that we really I want how long their case studies we have met a lot of people like Stephanie from and as San Francisco University we know Robert out in uh in Boulder Colorado we've met some people from Tulane in is a lot of people doing this and doing it differently and we want that reflected on choice and so the core of teach will be super basic strip down for the 1st time that you can look at the case studies all these different people have applied in different ways the local the remote working with a partner not working with a partner and the idea of lakes and Stephanie did she included blogs the students work were like constantly documenting their experiences they were working on this this is something we've done and but you know it's it's a wonderful option and it would be great to have that there so how many people
know tasking manager show fans OK a nice view so I take the rest of you kind of maybe have either children not heard of it are heard it in passing so an tasking manager OSM tasking manager and it was developed by the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Seymour hot and the tools was developed a coordinate collaborative mapping efforts specifically for disaster-affected areas OK and anybody can participate anybody can jump Bain and became a participate in a task but only administrators can actually set that job all OK so by setting a job all you you going to create a little task to say hey were mapping you know over a bowler and in this country and in a Boston users can go where they can basically check out a slice of real estate and angle traced back to the OpenStreetMap environment this is a game changer for us when we scaled up this exercise because when I did this previously I was jumping over about between q GIS Macon fishnets importance of open web sites and it was messy on my site to manage this was an amazing and leap for us we have to work with this and we're looking because are partners are part of the community that uses so the Red Cross USC ID so we allowed create tasks and we rely work with them but you know what this is created for a specific purpose and is not appropriate to open this all instructors you know a high school teacher as I said once to map a neighborhood with her her students that doesn't belong in humanitarian Task Manager so idea we approached or summary said hey crew get an educational 1 of these open running OK and will you be the administrator will grant any professor that teacher wants use it will be the ones that will be the gatekeepers and we collect timeout tasks that people don't complete but I it's just a wonderful way teaching this makes it doable for non job a the people so they were like OK we can consider that so we got a little bit of seed money from our university in innovative teaching grant and it's and their pure Gerard from camp to camp who works on tasking manager he had a lot of the things that we we we wanted to see some rational until further here this is what 1 of the
job looks like so previously to solid snapshots of each of the jobs and when you click on it this is what it looks like an students can select and a little cell and as you can see here and they check that out and that automatically opens in OpenStreetMap Editor window with ID and what we were like for teaching will be awesome if we could do like sit down and we can zoom in and out and we can determine as a given cell is easy or difficult a hard how we can assign you know 3 to Sammy given 3 easy ones given to
hard ones and then do the same for each of the student that was something that wasn't in there previously
so we work with those guys they share with our seed money and the added this capability so that you can that did the instructor come away in in very simple terms type S. cells as being like hard to do easy to do whatever and then also the ability to assign a particular cell to someone the way the original tasking was set up is people went in and the self chose we're dealing with students of course the smart ones is certainly the 1 of the easy ones and procrastinators the ones that you probably don't want doing the difficult stuff they get stuck with the difficult stuff in affects quality so again in the spirit of equity we wanted to be able to have this option to it to assign it so this is something that the added to this and the nice thing was a lot of the additions we wanted to see in task manager a lot of our friends the Red Cross the ID World Bank those guys they were like I think those are good things to have 4 the regular Task Manager so they added a little bit of money and we got a lot of uh and you all dates and tasking this is actually version 2 of tasking manager was a big revamp this summer and in the next week or 2 before all this with all the new toys will be created and will be teach and manager so we will look exactly the same but the difference will be it's work educators can go to make use of this were not kind of polluting the pool here which of the disaster community and so will look exactly the same and and the same functions but just at a different crew and
so and that's my like kind of got ahead of myself that's what I like to talk to there but and I really wanted to thank uh the folks that we've worked in this made is possible Miguel Maryland and OpenStreetMap and peer Gerard from camp to camp people I work into this and as Stephen Johnson is working with us and to get teach OSN going he's put it up and get hold of were very new to all this stuff so I'm I'm not using any job and correcting but we want the development of the site to be open to we do field of putting having the 1st batch putting up there it's much easier to get collaboration with the something to critique so rather than just constantly having a conversation about what teach should look like we're going to OK here's a 1st past have that people so we want people to use it to critique it to contribute to it at it is teaching this stuff it looks different free will look different for everybody we want that reflected and every which way and we don't want it to like belong to any 1 group or belong to any that particular tier of education and I think that's pretty much it for us we have a tendency to go over so we're trying to be very conservative today and that I feel it is a topic that feedback is the most important part cell anybody have any questions the yeah so so that's
how a picture has this how we doing you community of practice for this because you can obviously joined on get there is a teach OSM groups so that obviously and moral you can e-mail directly OK and then they use a November you have we're about is going to be on the November hybrid thanks to chosen to work with low OK that's where will be it's just a placeholder right now it yeah now after you've had this going for a couple of years and university of you seen uh any increased demand in other disciplines outside of GIS and geography for use of more sophisticated I spatial analysis tools and of you know for research and and or teaching in an aristocrat like in our department has grown considerably over the time we've been in this necessarily is like for because the stuff of things around to enchanted map but definitely other faculty become interested an and what I like and what we it this is something we spoke like yesterday in educational panel we teach introductory all the introductory classes were like the gatekeepers further aided geospatial learning and we teach our classes RGS classes to be software independence we expose students to the proprietary as well as the open source stuff and we really feel like always them is almost like a gateway drug to like some people into the world of geography the new geography and we've had a lot of interest from other departments we've had a lot with the partners collaborate with us on kind of traditional spatial analysis to but definitely and and but I think making it accessible to those other departments not making it to be you know all you have to go learn you know arc GIS and spatial statistics that there is a way there is there a way to do entry level in a meaningful way as part your class this wondering if you noticed any changes to the the data under canvas local community and or if you student houses user got addicted to this mapping and taken to the local community years done around a hot spots and stuff and we have looked at any stats and so post stats some who's done what when and when we're gonna mapping parties that use an electrical and shove in like 15 thousand edits within 2 weeks and stuff but just last last semester on this 2 instances of a given table we have around right in society and especially for humanitarian efforts so so going up running this this semester and we when working with the Red Cross supremum so they can start work of a backstop for 1 thing going crazy there but there is a this cave instances an interesting to body to say can you know do this on on the wall and simulate student wrong but were the advising that would work but is to run of organization of all the season in the Committee they're also based all in the universe has a lot of money for them as well the you know hundreds of of but success of getting out there is an interest in this because it's from of it and then the bring friends everyone doing some so over the role of from 1 part of the idea of the society cult cult hit W is that it's the course students will have a good solid GIS background they've been too many of these always things with us they will bring in all the students and they will train other students so it's not always people a come to our classes they're trying to student teaching student that kind of thing in DC is quite well matched his DCG have contributed a lot of data and I think we can and we tend to our students can it get the ball of the International Disaster Response thanks a lot of our students and kind of tend to work that stuff but you know if there's a big event right across a call us and say hey can you do a mapping party and will like to impromptu events and will of people have done this like 3 years ago show also bring their roommate and you know so there's definitely a sense of community not patented about this so this is the coolest thing seen it discovered think you and for my experience pretty easy organized mapping parties with the stages itself the idea sells itself especially if you feed so for a classroom environment curious if you find assume his then some quality work maybe doesn't really care very much any approach that you roll back the editor you you going redo it like what's your medication strategy for had and really for students and don't don't do good work during the yet there is it that yeah but as we as we great we go and we actually look for the word chimneys of all of that so we have to see them come off it's physical injury checksum we see things that are the most are more on have 1 student both of the building where over Rodin like to relate to without a broken discuss have pretty sure the so know life physically go in and change of those theory of them to the critical legal right and we threaten them there were like the colonies will die if you don't spit it out and it's actually funny have some of them will do you a crappy job of some of the other assignments but the really have taking to this and I think as we made our kind of teaching materials better the quality of the work has improved significantly for the 1st time this year we had this assignment is part of an online class and I was terrified format standing over them yelling at them have elegantly this right invaded the passage of the amount of stuff we fix is minimal which we has rights I think 1 of biggest things is sometimes they forget tags but that's like an easy thing for us to spot fictional pastoral allows you to query by students seeking just zone in on each 1 by 1 and you can take their work task and that's really help there are always the variety of quality in some some people are very particularly digitized every little nook and cranny and a little more general but lot of basic infrastructures there's every day is effects in not having visited destructive where do this right so people country and have work it's curious had against Choose your partners this the certainly OK so this is our 1st was written across because the guys there are some students in mind that the sector actually what Robert that it's funny I we have to think about that if the guy had been our friends for a couple years now so we forget how we got introduced to with it's kind of a bit of a buddy network it doesn't work that we're all within like 5 blocks of each other in DC we know well 1 with these guys of Red Cross predicon drinking buddies so that can help too much remember that after but yeah that that's actually how it started a student of mine had better job at the American Red Cross and and when he heard of in this project he thought was kind of fun cycle could we make this work together and it's kind confirmands overuse collaboration to like you know big hunkin products that were thinking about 6 months the no the right right thing at the right time thank

Abstract For the past three years Nuala Cowan & Richard Hinton of the Geography department at the George Washington University have integrated the open source mapping platform, OpenStreetMap into the curriculum for their introductory undergraduate Geographical Information Systems (GIS) & Cartography classes; traditionally the domain of desktop, proprietary software. Professors Cowan and Hinton have sought to expand the traditional curriculum, and expose students to various different open source software's, web based platforms, and data collection initiatives, specifically in a service-learning environment.In collaboration with both local & international partners (American Red Cross 2012, USAID 2014), GW Geography students have used high-resolution satellite imagery to trace road and building infrastructure (Columbia & Indonesia 2012, Kathmandu 2013, Philippines & Zimbabwe 2014), data that is subsequently used to support disaster preparedness efforts.Initiated by a small innovative teaching grant we have started work with OpenStreetMap foundation to develop a web site that would allow other instructors to replicate our mapping assignment specific to their particular discipline and curricular needs. This site is called TeachOSM.org. Our funding has since been matched by the World Bank, USAID (OTI and The Geocenter), the State Department and The American Red Cross. With this funding the scope of the project has been expanded to include the redevelopment of the OSM Tasking manager. The OSM Tasking Manager is a custom-mapping tool that facilitates collaborative mapping projects with a humanitarian focus. The purpose of the tool is to divide a mapping job into individual smaller tasks for group work, while guaranteeing coverage and minimizing overlap. New additions to the Tasking Manager will allow instructors to assign cells to individual students for both data creation, and data validation roles.Mapping has applicability across many fields and communities of interest, and can used to document, archive, plan and contribute to both local and international initiatives.Open source mapping modules and assignments are also a unique way to integrate service-learning strategies in course curriculum, while exposing students to new and exciting technological platforms. The experience teaches civic responsibility and the value of collaborative efforts in the global community.The collaborative mapping initiatives at GWU Geography have been exclusively disaster related to date, as this coincides with the research interests of the faculty involved. We believe this instructional module/assignment is applicable to many disciplines and teaching scenarios, and the objective of the TeachOSM platform is to open that possibility to these other fields, in a comprehensive user friendly way.
