#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.

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

  • Author: HOT, MapGive
  • Mapping for: All the humanitarian stakeholders
  • Purpose: Crisis Response
  • Priority: High

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.

#1121 Missing Maps: Doro Refugee Camp, South Sudan

  • Author: HOT
  • Requesting organization: Missing Maps

Large numbers of people have fled violence in Blue Nile State and many thousands have ended up in Doro Refugee Camp. Maps will help NGOs working in the camps improve surveillance for diseases of outbreak potential. By mapping down to the detail of camp structures, medical and logistics teams can estimate population sizes and provide optimum water, sanitation and health services.

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). Unlike HOT's disaster response activations, the Missing Maps tasks facilitate pre-emptive mapping of priority countries to better facilitate disaster response, medical activities and resource allocation when crises occur.

#1106 Missing Maps: Cité Gécamines, Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)

  • Author: Missing Maps / HOT
  • Requesting organization: MSF
  • Priority: High

Lubumbashi has been partially mapped at the request of MSF to help the organisation respond to the frequent disease outbreaks that hit the city. Missing Maps / HOT will be running training for volunteers in Lubumbashi (starting on the 17th July) to help complete the field mapping, so that MSF can use the data in outbreak surveillance and response.

To conduct effective epidemiology, building level data is needed, and while Lubumbashi is very well mapped, a lot of neighbourhoods are lacking in this area. Please help us complete the tracing, so that the data can be used in the coming weeks.

  • Auteur: Missing Maps/HOT
  • Organisation requérante: MSF
  • Priorité: High

Lubumbashi a été partiellement cartographié à la demande de MSF afin d’aider l’organisation à répondre aux épidémies fréquent qui touchent la ville. « Missing Maps/HOT » organisera des programmes de formations pour les bénévoles à Lubumbashi (débutant le 17 juillet) afin de compléter la cartographie de façon à ce que MSF puisse utiliser les données dans la surveillance et l’intervention d’épidémies.

Pour la conduite efficace de l’épidémiologie, les données des étages de bâtiments sont nécessaires, et bien que Lubumbashi soit bien cartographié, plusieurs quartiers manquent ces données. S’il vous plaît, aidez-nous à compléter le calquage de façon à ce que les données peuvent être utilisés dans les prochaines semaines.

Le projet « Missing Maps » a pour but de cartographier les endroits dans le monde les plus vulnérables (affecter par des crises humanitaires : épidémies, conflit, catastrophes naturelles, pauvreté, crises environnementales). En se fondant sur les projets de « HOT » d’état de préparation en cas de catastrophe, les tâches de « Missing Maps » facilitent la cartographie de préemption de pays prioritaire afin de mieux faciliter l’intervention en cas de catastrophe, les activités médicales et l’allocations des ressources lorsque les crises se présentent.

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.).
