The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) and Geofabrik, with funding from USAID and the World Bank, developed an online tool to enable users to more easily obtain access to OSM data. Called the “HOT Exports” tool, the software is designed to allow anyone to customize and download an OSM map. Since created, the HOT Exports tool has been utilized and shared all over the world.

These two guidance documents provide an overview of the HOT Exports tool and share step-by-step instructions on how to download a map using the tool.

This activity is part of USAID’s Learning Improvement Projects, funded by PPL’s Office of Learning, Evaluation, and Research, and supported by the Knowledge-Driven Microenterprise Development (KDMD) project. These projects aim to catalyze Agency learning by sharing lessons learned from innovative pilot projects with the hope that promising approaches can be replicated and scaled up by others for greater impact.
