#591 South Sudan Crisis, Cholera outbreak in Juba, mapping with WorldView-2 imagery

Juba, the capital city of South Sudan, has experienced rapid growth in the last few years, and following the violence since December 2013, is now facing a cholera outbreak, as shown on this overview map from UNOCHA or this more detailed map from the UN WASH cluster. This urges the need for updated foundation geographic data. Thanks to the MapGive project, we have access to a WorldView-2 imagery dated 20 February 2014, whose offsets have been corrected in this TM job.

#755 Ebola, Grand Gedeh Basemapping - Part 1

We have received a request for a detailed basemap of Grand Gedeh county in Liberia from a group called Direct Relief who is helping support ground teams from one of their partners. They have given us a large area of "area of interest" to cover over the bulk of Grand Gedeh county, however currently only a small portion has imagery coverage. Since the area is fairly sparsely populated anyways, it makes sense just to map the whole thing, starting from where we have imagery and extending over the coverage we receive in the future. This first task covers the portion of the area we have imagery for, more tasks will be made as new imagery comes online.

About the Tasking Manager

OSM Tasking Manager is a mapping tool designed and built for the Humanitarian OSM Team collaborative mapping. The purpose of the tool is to divide up a mapping job into smaller tasks that can be completed rapidly. It shows which areas need to be mapped and which areas need the mapping validated.
This approach facilitates the distribution of tasks to the various mappers in a context of emergency. It also permits to control the progress and the homogeinity of the work done (ie. Elements to cover, specific tags to use, etc.).
