Dense Urban Mapping - Not for beginners, but high resolution drone imagery to trace from
HOT is supporting the local OSM community in Peru to improve the basemap in areas affected by recent flooding. This project may not be easy for beginners as it involves mapping multiple features and preserving connectivity of the road network and waterways across task squares.Created by bgirardot - Updated - Priority: high

Mugumu is the capital of Serengeti district in eastern Tanzania and the surrounding villages have a very high incidence of Female Genital Mutilation, early marriage and Gender Based Violence. NGOs on the ground need better road and residential area data to facilitate their outreach work. We need to complete this map so we can print out paper maps ready for the next "FGM cutting season" in December.Created by JanetChapman - Updated - Priority: medium

Sierra Leone has among the highest child mortality rate and the highest maternal mortality ratio in the world. An already dysfunctional national health system was further weakened by the Ebola outbreak through loss of life amongst health staff. Within this, Kenema District has the highest child mortality rate.
MSF is soon to open a project to reduce under 5 and maternal morbidity / mortality through supporting medical activities covered in the national policy for the free health care initiative, targeting the isolated chiefdoms of Gorama Mende / Wandor in Kenema District. The goal is to offer access to maternal and child health services in a remote, rural locality to work on how to increase the pickup of services in the communities. A detailed chiefdom mapping will highly help our achievement of this objective.
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.Created by pedrito1414 - Updated - Priority: low
JOSM Validator should be run each time a tile is selected
The goal is is accurate and complete data with as few errors as possible
The basemap is completed for the #MapLesotho project. This task forms part of a collection of 11 new tasks (10 districts, 1 city) to move the mapping from a national to a local district level.
Completion of this task will result in 100% coverage for all roads, waterways and buildings with all features being accurately mapped to ensure a high level of quality. An important element of this task requires that JOSM validator is run each time a tile is selected to correct errors from previous mapping attempts.Created by DaCor - 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!
