Chennai Floods - OSM intervention


#1

As you might all know, Chennai and its surrounding areas have been severely flooded due to heavy rainfall. Help has been provided from all ends to the people affected by floods.

The flood map has been built using OpenStreetMap data to report flooded streets in Chennai. Do share this with people you know on the ground. Also for those who’re interested in tracing missing streets in Chennai, join the mapping project which has been setup at OpenStreetMap India Tasking Manager.
