Bevölkerungsschutz und Katastrophenhilfe

On May 28th members of the OpenStreetMap community met with employees of the Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance ("Bundesamt für Bevölkerungsschutz und Katastrophenhilfe" or BBK) for an workshop in Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler, Germany.

The main goal of this event, taking place at the Academy for Crisis Management Emergency Planning and Civil Protection ("Akademie für Krisenmanagement, Notfallplanung und Zivilschutz" or AKNZ), was to inform active contributors of the OpenStreetMap community and employees of AKNZ and BBK about OpenStreetMap and crisis mapping.
