OpenStreetMap Training in Bhutan by KLL

A team from Kathmandu Living Labs (KLL) is training the officials from the Bhutanese government on OpenStreetMap and the related tools. In addition to the government officials, KLL team will also be training over three dozen students from Royal Thimphu College (RTC), participants from private sector and development partners. The Bhutanese government aims to incorporate the benefits of the free and open map data provided by OpenStreetMap in its operations and KLL is helping them to get started. This project is a joint effort among Thimphu Thromde, the World Bank, Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) and KLL. The training program starts on Aug 16 and is scheduled for over two weeks and will constitute a number of workshops, hands-on map editing, field sessions for map data collection and sessions on spatial analysis using OSM data and other open source tools.
