OpenStreetMap & QGIS - Pacific Islands

Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme

The aim of this project is to raise awareness of OpenStreetMap (OSM) among Pacific GIS users, by providing a bundle of OSM data and a pre-styled QGIS project for each of 21 countries (and also one for the wider region).

The data bundles are available on the Pacific Environment Portal and national environment portals, automatically updated on a weekly basis. Users are able to easily access and explore the data, and encouraged to fill in gaps where they exist in the OSM database.

"When we wanted to make OpenStreetMap data available for Pacific users, John Bryant from Mammoth Geospatial was the perfect match. Not only did he have the expertise to deliver in a very short amount of time, John sets the bar high when it comes to quality and detail. You really feel his passion for the open geospatial community. But most of all, it was a fun, learning, highly collaborative experience!"
