When we began, Nepal was virtually blank on most maps. Today, a growing community has put our houses, neighborhoods and our gallis on OpenStreetMap. It is now possible to get around Kathmandu with a completely offline digital map, and the open map digital infrastructure is serving government, app developers, and businesses.
After the 2015 earthquakes, the map was used extensively to provide support to the disaster response. Nepal’s mapping community is recognized as pioneers in the world today.
