#1936 #MapLesotho - Berea Detailed District Mapping

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.

#2653 Missing Maps: Aweil, South Sudan (part 1a - residential areas and buildings)

  • Author: Missing Maps
  • Requesting Organaization: MSF

This task is great for beginners. The data are prepared by MapSwipe, and the buildings are clearly visible on the imagery. Enjoy the mapping and help our teams!

Aweil, the capital of South Sudan’s Northern Bahr el Ghazal State, is home to tens of thousands of people, many of whom live on the city’s largely unmapped outskirts. Putting these settlements on the map is the first step to collecting crucial health and demographic data that will help MSF provide essential medical care to this underserved population. Mapping the Aweil region will allow MSF to conduct surveys to learn where patients live, where medical needs are most acute, and where seasonal peaks in illnesses like malaria and malnutrition are likely to occur.

#1491 Ecuador - Mt. Cotopaxi, Ambato

In August 2015, Ecuador declared a state of emergency after Cotopaxi shot ash 7 miles into the air on August 2015. The volcano has since continued spewing ash and steam, causing continued concern for those living in the vulnerable areas nearby. Currently, not much open data exists for the region, which is concerning since many high populated areas are located nearby – including the nation’s capital, Quito. Due to the former, roads, buildings, rivers, and bridges are the primary needs for feature tracing within OpenStreetMap.

#2782 Missing maps: Tete, Mozambique

  • Author: Missing Maps
  • Requesting Organaization: MSF
  • Map Feature: Buildings and road network

A cholera epidemic affects the Mozambique since the beginning of the year. Several regions are concerned and even the capital Maputo knows many cases. The peak of the epidemic appears behind us, but the country remains an endemic area for cholera. Some places in the north and in the west are regularly faced with killing waves. Therefore, it is highly necessary to proceed to a substantive treatment of the epidemic. Following the recommendation of the emergency team which had been sent to the field in early March, Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has taken the decision to launch a vaccination campaign of the population.

#1396 Missing Maps: Niger State (north), Nigeria (project 1: roads and residential areas )

  • Author: Missing Maps
  • Requesting organization: Médecins Sans Frontières
  • Priority: Low

MSF teams working in northern Nigeria respond to a variety of different health needs. These include emergency response to disease outbreaks across the area. Accurate maps of the area will assist emergency teams with epidemiological analysis, disease surveillance and logistical planning.

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.

#2686 Missing Maps: Kramat Jati Sub Districs #PDCJakarta

This project is designed to build upon the initial success of the USAID OFDA-funded, PDC-implemented InAWARE program as well as investments and activities carried out by DMInnovation (InaSAFE), HOT (OSM), and the MIT Urban Risk Lab (petabencana.id & its CogniCity open source software) to build capacity to incorporate crowdsourced information into existing disaster monitoring and early warning platforms to increase capacity within Indonesia’s disaster management agencies at the national level (BNPB) and within selected provincial centers (BPBD) for effective disaster early warning and decision making

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!
