Over the past 10 years Kate has mapped all sorts of things. Everything from mosquitoes, to individual houses for e911 to hurricanes and occasionally even things that don’t exist such as augmented reality games. A traditional geographer by training, switched to the “neogeography” realm a couple years ago.
Currently she is one of the individuals behind the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT). HOT utilizes the tools and techniques of OpenStreetMap to help communities prepare for disaster and rebuild when a disaster does strike.
