Learn how your organization can benefit by using existing maps and data from your projects, and work with Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team to fill in the gaps in your own map data.

Every humanitarian organization uses maps, but often critical details are missing in the places we work. More accurate and complete detail can help with humanitarian and international development work, from estimating the number of people affected in an emergency to identifying where people have moved to and now need help.

Facebook works together with Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team to build better maps for organizations like Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and UN Agencies using a combination of machine learning, satellite imagery, crowdsourced data and mapping, and local knowledge. Learn how your organization can benefit by using existing maps and data from the project, and work with Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team to fill in the gaps in your own map data.
