OSM Nepal Category

Category name

OSM Nepal

Is this a top-level category or a subcategory?

This is a sub-category. (Category for Nepal community)

Description of its purpose and which open mapping groups it will serve

There is a need of standard community for discussion on topics related to Nepal mapping.

Why is this new category needed instead of being hosted as part of the existing ones?

This will be focussed on all the mapping activities for the country Nepal. It will have distinct characteristics to be discussed. There is need of separate category.

Is this a new space or does it already exist on other platforms? Where?

Nepali community is using Facebook but there is a need to have this forum for Nepali affected topics.
(Link for Facebook group: OSM Nepal | Facebook )

Current volume of messages on the former platforms, if any (per week/per month)

5 to 10 posts per week; 25-30 posts per month

Is there a transition plan for the old platform to this new one? (please link or describe)

As a new category is created here we will be inviting all the people form Facebook to this community so that we could get more exposure and get answers to our questions from experts from all over the world that are active in this community forum

(Optional) A link or list of the category specific guidelines
