#964 Pam Cyclone (Category 5), Vanuatu Archipel, North-West area, Detailed mapping incl. buildings

  • Author: Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Volunteers (HOT)
  • Requesting Organization: NetHope, Red Cross
  • Priority: Urgent

Following the landing of this cyclone, as severe as the Haiyan typhoon, many deaths were reported, and communications were cut. As International organizations field teams arrive to support, they ask us to complete the basemap to assure a better planning of the response. The extent of the zone to cover from the north to the south is 650 km long. The post-assessment evaluations that are presently made need good pre-disaster informations to compare.

In this context, the basemap will be useful for a rapid response.

This task is to trace residential areas, schools, places of worship, highways, waterways, airport, airstrip, common areas and all buildings

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.

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.).
