#1988 Milange District, Mozambique III -- 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 Milange.

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.

#1917 Peace Corps Benin -- Sahoue Zougbonou

The Peace Corps Benin Community Economic Development program is requesting assistance building a better base map of Sahoue Zougbonou. The data will be used by the local waste collection service to build a database of their customers and optimize their waste collection routes.

#2036 Missing Maps: Hadjer Lamis villages 2, Chad (buildings and residential road networks)

  • Author: Missing Maps
  • Requesting Organization: MSF

The Hadjer Lamis area of Chad is very poor, and there is an unusual burden of disease and malnutrition among the people who live there, which contributes to high mortality in children under five years old. In order to better understand, assess, and respond to this, we need to know more about the population.

MSF teams are mapping villages and taking their names on the ground, but identifying all of the inhabited areas and counting the structures is much more efficient from aerial photos. Knowing where all of the villages are scattered through the savanna helps us to map them, and counting the buildings within each village gives us a quick and fairly accurate method to estimate population. This is important to help MSF understand the spread of disease and identify areas of highest need.

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.

#2023 Missing Maps: East Swaziland - Malaria Elimination Programme - Project 6 of 7

This project should be the focus of Swaziland validation. Needs more mappers for invalidated task squares.

The southern African Kingdom of Swaziland is leading the way in the global fight against malaria and is on the verge of making history by eliminating malaria from its borders by the end of 2016 according to the Kingdom of Swaziland National Malaria Control Programme. If the country achieves malaria elimination, it will be the first country in southern Africa to achieve zero local cases.

Please be a part of this amazing effort at eliminating malaria in Swaziland in 2016 and map in some buildings!

Great for new mappers - Buildings only - Very easy but important mapping

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 control of the progress and the homogeneity of the work done (e.g. elements to cover, specific tags to use, etc.).


New to Mapping?

Just jump over to OpenStreetMap, create an account, and then visit the LearnOSM tutorials on the Tasking Manager and the iD editor. Alternatively check out the MapGive website which also provides information on the Tasking Manager and mapping. Once you have read up on how to map, come back here to help map for people on the ground!
