Post-disaster ‘mapathon’ for Mozambique
That’s why the International Red Cross made a ‘Missing Maps’ appeal to the world. Several Kadaster employees used their free time to update the maps of the flooded areas, made available by the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap community.
Kadaster supports Beira
Kadaster is involved in a land administration project in the city of Beira. This city was hit first and is badly damaged. Fortunately, all produced data was saved thanks to periodic backups. The city hall, the project rooms and related equipment however were severely damaged. Kadaster is supporting the municipality of Beira in the needed reconstruction of the city hall. Together with all Dutch partners in this project, other project implications and related measures will be investigated.
