Steven speaks with Arnalie Vicario, Online Community Engagement Lead at HOT. After several years of volunteering in the OpenStreetMap Philippines community, Arnalie is the first person to hold the role as Online Community Engagement Lead at HOT. She and Steven discuss the specific problems HOT is trying to address with the role, and reflect on the many challenges of making an inclusive, global community within OpenStreetMap and the wider open mapping community. The discussion move on to paid mapping, ensuring that the HOT community contributes responsibly to OSM, and encouraging sustainable, local mapping communities.
