On the 24th of March, the Séléka, a coalition of rebels, took the power by force in the Central-African Republic (CAR). Zémio is one of the sub-prefectures in Haut-Mbomou, the Far Eastern Prefecture of Central African Republic. It is located close to the boundary with DRC, and is frequently crossed by traffickers and armed groups like LRA. It is one of the less well mapped CAR sub-prefectures in OSM. Bing Imagery is limited there, as there is no high resolution over the Easter part of Zémio and the high resolution cover is sometimes quite cloudy. Nevertheless, The main frame of the city and entire parts can already be mapped, and the rest can be completed when better imagery will be available.Created by sev_osm - Updated - Priority: medium

On the 24th of March, the Séléka, a coalition of rebels, took the power by force in the Central-African Republic (CAR). Bangui is the capital of CAR. Its Northern suburbs still remain to be mapped and are actually one of the most affected areas by violence. Because of the huge lack of geographical information for the humanitarian actors in the field (e.g. OCHA, Unicef, Solidarités International), this job was created.
Le 24 Mars, la Séléka, une coalition de rebelles, a pris le pouvoir par la force en République Centrafricaine (RCA). Bangui est la capitale du pays. Ses faubourgs nord ne sont pas encore cartographiés et figurent parmi les zones les lus affectées par des phénomènes de violence. En raison d'un grand manque d'informations géographiques pour les acteurs humanitaires sur le terrain (par exemple, OCHA, UNICEF, Solidarité Internationale), cette tâche a été créée.Created by PierZen - Updated - Priority: medium

On the 2nd July 2013 a magnitude 6.2 earthquake occurred in Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam Province, Northern Sumatra, Indonesia, as reported by BMKG. The death toll exceeded 40 and many buildings were destroyed and many more damaged. The affected area is rural with some larger towns exposed and twelve villages in the worst impacted area. Earthquake shaking intensities peaked at MMI VIII (severe shaking). The damage illustrates the significant earthquake risk that exists in Indonesia that is driven by high earthquake hazard, large human exposure and very vulnerable construction types. While devastating, this event provides a valuable opportunity to gather information on Indonesian building types and their performance in severe earthquakes.Created by mahardika fadmastuti - Updated - Priority: medium
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.).
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!
If you have any questions about a project, a task or mapping in general please ask on our mailing list: HOT E-Mail List.
