Youths of Panga joined OSM movement

Youths of Panga joined OSM movement

An interaction program on openstreetmap(OSM)was organized at Dhokashi, Panga, Kirtipur. Youths from Panga with different backgrounds were present. The participants were familiarized with the OSM and its advantages in an interaction session. Shashish Maharjan, facilitator of program explained a brief history of maps and its developing trends. "It is a map created by the public just like us around the globe", said Shashish further clarifying about the OSM. Basically, just like other ordinary maps, open street maps are also maps containing geographical information of a place. The major difference being, unlike in other maps, people like us create this map using tracking tools like GPS available in mobile phones. So, OSM necessarily doesn't need official mapping personnel to gets its shape. Anyone from any part of the world can contribute to it. And unlike widely used Google maps; it's free to use its data for personal purposes, to distribute and to edit. Moreover, it can be updated locally and with less effort and in short period of time.
