make OSM ausome
Ausome Maps aims to map on OpenStreetMap all the schools with SPED classes, physical, speech, and occupational therapy clinics and other geared toward the development of differently abled Filipinos.
Ausome Maps is among the selected exemplary projects to be supported and implemented by the Open Mapping Hub Asia-Pacific with the support of the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team.
state of the map
For families who have to find a suitable therapy place or sped school for their differently-abled kids, an updated and complete map is essential.
In the Philippines, out of over 5000 points of interest (pois) identified as a school, only 12 are tagged as ‘special needs’. And fewer than 10 pois are identified as places for therapy. Hence, there is a need to update the map information.
Mapathons are the core of our activities. Through Mapathons we will be able to update school tags to include specialized education they cater to, add new POIs for speech, occupational, and physical therapy centers, and other similar establishments. All these changes on OpenStreetMap will be governed a set of validation rules to ensure data quality.
