Problem

Lack of updated, hyper-local map data in high-risk countries is causing critical time loss in decision making, affecting lives saved. Without up-to-date digital map data, it is impossible to make time-sensitive, educated decisions before, during, and after a disaster. High-quality imagery must be available to support disaster managers and responders. In the midst of a disaster, it is difficult to find, access, and share openly licensed imagery for rapid response.

Solution

OAM mapTo solve the challenge of finding, accessing, and sharing imagery in the midst of a disaster, we’ve built OpenAerialMap (OAM). OAM is a single-entry platform with simple licensing options that provides robust search and rapid upload and sharing options. OAM provides an easy mechanism for drone pilots to upload and share imagery collected with disaster managers and responders. Disaster managers can quickly make maps and extract information from the imagery provided. Beyond disaster response, imagery provision is a critical step in creating data for monitoring and meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by making available fundamental, detailed, and timely information on where things are in our world. OAM provides the imagery infrastructure to empower communities to create data about key community assets and vulnerabilities to help decision makers.
