OpenStreetMap Foundation | Supporting the OpenStreetMap project In January 2014, OpenStreetMap saw its 20 millionth edit. User:cosmicpop registered to edit OpenStreetMap just recently, and made a little fix to the map of his local neighbourhood. These things happen thousands of times every day, and with enough people mapping in their local area, we’re building a free and open map of the world! But this time was special. This was the 20 millionth edit saved to OpenStreetMap.
Haïti est un pays en Amérique du Nord à la latitude 18° 53′ 24″ Nord et la longitude 72° 49′ 48″ Ouest. Le 12 janvier 2010, un tremblement de terre de magnitude 7.0 a frappé la ville de Port-au-Prince à Haïti. L'Épidémie de choléra en octobre 2010, fait également ressortir la problématique de l'eau potable et la vulnérabilité des personnes vivant dans des camps. La communauté OpenStreetMap peut aider la réponse humanitaire en cartographiant à partir de l'imagerie satellitaire (ou d'autres sources) et en collectant et centralisant les référentiels cartographiques existants. Si vous êtes en contact avec des communautés d'haïtiens expatriés, pensez à les contacter pour travailler en collaboration pour nommer les lieux, etc. FR:WikiProject Haiti
