The earthquake in Nepal has strongly changed the geography of the area.  At the moment, humanitarian aid organizations are in urgent need of updated maps to intervene promptly and bring relief to victims.Thanks to the  HOT - Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team project, anyone can contribute to update the map of Nepal from their own computer. Maurizio Napolitano, FBK technologist  and head of the Digital Commons Lab team at Trento-based Fondazione Bruno Kessler will explain us how to do it.
