#2359 Missing Maps: Port-au-Prince, Haiti (buildings only)

Dense urban environment - more suitable for mappers with some experience.

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

As part of the response to Hurricane Matthew, MSF teams in this area of Port-au-Prince are addressing threats of dengue, chikungunya, cholera and zika and the project is in need of geographic data for several components, including water and sanitation activities (spraying, larviciding, fumigation in order to kill mosquitoes and larva), identification of larva sites in streets and at community level, entomologic surveillance, health promotion to sensitise and inform local people and cholera surveillance.

The maps produced will support decision making processes, support population estimates and serve to communicate and plan activities.

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.

MSF also organises mobile clinics, which respond to the needs of people affected by violence, insecurity and poor access to healthcare, some of whom have have been forced to flee their homes.

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!
