#1082 CAR, Bangui, 2014 update - Mapgive Project imagery

This job aims at updating and improving the map of SouthBangui, thanks to a March 24, 2014 WorldView-1 imagery provided by the MapGive project. The mapping encompasses improving the existing data and providing a date to the structures so that the urban growth can be monitored in the future.

As it deals with imagery date and potentially, improving the existing data, it fits more with experienced contributors using JOSM.

#1497 Derre District, Mozambique -- Africa Indoor Residual Spraying Campaign

This project directly supports programs under the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), which was launched in 2005 with the goal to reduce malaria-related mortality by 50 percent across sub-Saharan Africa. The OpenStreetMap data created through this task will be used to plan the logistics of an Indoor Residual Spraying campaign in Derre.

Before you begin mapping please review the Malaria Prevention in Mozambique tracing guide. This guide provides pictures and information on features needed to support Malaria prevention efforts in Mozambique.

#1486 Peace Corps Botswana - Bobonong

The Peace Corps Botswana Public Health program, along with the District Health Management Team and the Home-Based Care NGO in Bobonong, is requesting assistance building a better base map of Bobonong. Initially, the base map data will be used to conduct mapping exercises and geographic analysis in support of malaria prevention. Objectives include mapping malaria cases to better understand transmission trends and conduct contact tracing and mapping Indoor Residual Spraying campaigns. The organizations would also like to use the OSM data to monitor TB cases, optimize routing while providing care to home-based patients, and better allocate resources to orphans and vulnerable children.

#1482 Edo State Road Network Mapping for Vaccine Delivery Routing, Nigeria

eHealth Africa is working at mapping Nigeria. These maps are used for various projects which are to tackle and provide simplified health solutions. The maps are used to track the vaccination teams, delivery of vaccines, Internally displaced people coordination, distance matrix and plan new vaccination campaigns. As we move on to surveillance stage in our fight against Polio, more data are still needed to consolidate on our success against the virus.

#1478 Missing Maps: Map South Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo (Project 17: Roads and residential areas)

  • Author: Missing Maps
  • Priority: Medium

The Democratic Republic of Congo is a priority country for the Missing Maps project. South Kivu is a province of DRC that, for decades, has faced unceasing humanitarian crises. With constantly changing conflicts, seasonal disease epidemics and a population in constant flux, MSF and other NGOs have permanent presences here.

There is no freely available mapping data available for the province, aside from that which has been already generously contributed by the HOT community in response to very specific crises. The Missing Maps has launched the Map South Kivu project to map the entire province, both remotely and through local community mapping. See here for a video introduction to mapping South Kivu.

The Missing Maps project aims to map the most vulnerable places in the world (affected by humanitarian crises: disease epidemics, conflict, natural disasters, poverty, environmental crises). Building on HOT's disaster preparedness projects, the Missing Maps tasks facilitate pre-emptive mapping of priority countries to better facilitate disaster response, medical activities and resource allocation when crises occur.

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.).
