A study is being undertaken into how indigenous organisations in developing countries can develop digital maps for disaster preparedness. There have been recent high-profile examples of the mapping community updating OpenStreetMap and Google Map Maker in response to disasters in developing countries. Although laudable, our contention is that it would be better still if disaster-prone areas were mapped in advance so that relevant geographic information would be available from day one. The technology exists; the challenge is to identify a motivation and means for organisations in vulnerable areas to collect and maintain geographic information for themselves. Possible ways of meeting this challenge are explored and discussed
