Looking forward to a HOT summer

Hello! My name is Taylor and in a little over a month I will be traveling to Kampala, Uganda to work with Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT).   HOT uses open data for disaster response and socio-economic development by mapping projects around the world and making geocoded data available in OpenStreetMap. As a team member at HOT, the two main components of my work will be 1) analyzing and visualizing data on financial inclusion in Uganda and 2) creating an interactive web map of HOT’s global impact. These deliverables will call attention to gaps in financial services access in Uganda and allow greater engagement with HOT member projects. I am also looking forward to working with project partners from the University of Makerere and Financial Sector Deepening Uganda to assist in GIS training and data analysis activities.
