In mid 2014, almost 400,000 people from CAR left their home to flee in neighboring countries. The main refugee location is in Cameroon, as showed on this UNOCHA map.
This job aims at mapping the area from Gandoula, a CAR sub-prefecture close to the border, Kenzou, the refugee entry point in Cameroon, as well as the areas including Lola and Mbilé, that host now refugee sites (not visible on Bing imagery).
In order to provide baseline data to the relief organizations, the AOIs (Areas Of Interest) including the CAR border, the entry points locations in Cameroon and the refugee sites will be mapped, based especially on this UNHCR map. They have been added to the uMap showing the OSM mapping progress and potential AOIs

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.Created by sev_hotosm - Updated - Priority: high
This job aims at updating the map of Bossangoa and identifying the damaged buildings due to repeated violences. It relies on a GeoEye-1- DigitalGloble - NextView imagery over Bossangoa, dated April 6, 2014.
The imagery is provided by the Humanitarian Information Unit as part of the MapGive Project.
It is strongly recommended to use JOSM and the offset_db plugin to deal with the existing imagery offset (see instructions).Created by sev_hotosm - Updated - Priority: high

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is deploying for the Ebola epidemic going on there. More detailed basemap data (roads, villages, streets, buildings) is needed to assist in the response. Through the MapGive project, the Humanitarian Information Unit (HIU) of the U.S. Department of State is providing the OpenStreetMap community access to updated satellite imagery services to help assist with humanitarian mapping.Created by AndrewBuck - Updated - Priority: high

Abidjan, Ivory Coast, is subject to heavy rain for almost a week. Flooding in several areas of the capital are recorded. This youtube video shows the importance of water flow. Local OSM community is trying to report affected locations in this collaborative umap link for mapping.
This task is part of a series of tasks to be created to cover all flooded areas to map them on OpenStreetMap.Created by ndongpotter - Updated - Priority: high

Context: More than one million people no longer have access to drinking water and 500,000 evacuated
More then 3,000 landslides and more then 100,000 infrastructures and houses destroyed.
This job is to revise the basemap for some priority zones, more affected by the floods along the Sava river and his tributaries.Created by PierZen - Updated - Priority: high
Author: Mark_Cupitt, AndrewBuck, Pierzen Requesting organization: none (HMP Activity) Context: Developing Crisis - Drought Imagery: Bing Priority: Medium Since the beginning of March 2014, severe shortages of food and water have been reported in Tharparkar District in Pakistan's south-east Sindh province. With no rainfall, and child deaths due to malnutrition, the Government of Sindh has declared a disaster. Aid is desperately needed in this area and mapping is needed of areas with habitation and access roads.Created by Mark_Cupitt - Updated - Priority: high
Recent violence in South Sudan, and the resulting humanitarian emergency, has increased the need for updated foundation geographic data.

Tracing of buildings in Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo at the request of MSF. The tracing data will be used in the future by MSF ground teams for surveys. This task is lower priority than the other ongoing work in CAR and South Sudan. The goal is to have this mapped within a few weeks to a month though.
Cette tâche vise à cartographier la ville de Goma en République Démocratique du Congo, à la demande de MSF France. La donnée digitalisée va être utilisée pour des enquêtes de terrain par MSF France. La priorité est moindre que pour les tâches en cours en RCA et au Sud Soudan. Le but est cependant que la ville soit cartographiée en quelques semaines ou un mois.Created by AndrewBuck - Updated - Priority: high
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.).
