#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.

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.

#1069 Missing Maps: Kigoma region, Tanzania

  • Author: Missing Maps
  • Requesting Organization: MSF and Red Cross
  • Priority: High

The Kigoma Region is the region between Burundi and Tanzania where Burundian refugees cross the border. A cholera outbreak is now spreading in this area, especially in the town of Kigoma and the refugee camp of Nyagurusu. NGOs on the ground need better road and residential area data to respond, especially on the Tanzanian side which is much less mapped than Burundi.

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.).
