Open Source Map for Nangarhar

Jalala­good Geek Squad worked on this open source map of Nan­garhar for about sev­en months start­ing from June 2011.

I am not brag­ging but Jalal­abad is the most detailed city on open street map. A lot of aid work­ers and those who are new in town use this open source map to get around in Nan­garhar. If you are using it on a smart phone it has nav­i­ga­tion as well. NGOs and health work­ers use it to plan their human­i­tar­i­an projects. Jalal­abad city on Open­StreetMap.

If you go into dis­trict lev­el map and zoom in, you can see details of any dis­trict. We are plan­ning to cre­ate open source maps for as many provinces in the coun­try as pos­si­ble. We are cur­rent­ly look­ing into ways to fund this project in the next province. We will have a very detailed map of the whole coun­try some day, Inshal­lah. One map at a time!
