The BringBee Team is saving Congo

Map lovers

Today i want to present two of our outstanding team members: Shoaib Burq and Kashif Rasul.

One special interest is their love for geo-applications and maps. Kashif is a core commiter for PostGIS, the leading open source extension to turn PostgreSQL into a geospatial database and Shoaib has worked for the Australian government for years, mapping the world and oceans.

Now they are helping out to save Congo!

On February 15th, they are helping out at the congo mapping party, showing and helping to trace maps to build up open street maps for Congo.
The results will ultimately help to map outbreaks of cholorea and other diseases.
If you are in Berlin, if you want to learn how to trace maps for open street map, if you want to contribute to make aid more efficient in Congo, come to the event in Berlin’s beta house.
