An interactive map was created with Syrian refugees living in Germany. The refugees were invited to a workshop session, where they were taught the basics of interactive maps in the web and computer usage, in order to tag points of interest in a map. The POIs were supposed to be helpful for new coming refugees, so they can orient themselves better around the Siegen-Wittgenstein area. The data collected will be helpful for the research project “Nett-Werkzeug”, which focuses on helping refugees and volunteers to get in contact and provide various services (such as the already described map, translator exchange service).

Here is the map.
