State of the Map Africa 2021

Julius Ivan

I am currently a volunteer and trainer with OpenStreetMap Uganda, an NGO registered here in Uganda. I am also a graduate student of Geo-information science and technology and passionate about GIS and remote sensing.
It is and has always been a pleasure sharing knowledge and learning in a multicultural environment and I am confident that this opportunity will be a great fit for me because I derive satisfaction in sharing and learning from people who come from multiple backgrounds.


The New Cities Project Uganda
Julius Ivan

OpenStreetMap Uganda (MapUganda) is a Ugandan registered NGO whose major activities involve promoting community mapping, GIS awareness, actively contributing to open data, and building a network of enthusiastic community mappers in Uganda.
The New Cities project is trying to address the challenge of unemployment through our internship programs that aim at skilling our students with actual marketable skills in the Job Market by providing a platform for individuals to learn, grow and develop in their careers that can be a stepping stone for these graduates to have a fresh start whether in the employment or self-employment industry.
