#2711 Missing Maps: Kenema, Sierra Leone (part 4 - residential areas and buildings)

  • Author: Missing Maps
  • Requesting Organization: MSF

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.

#2233 Ecuador - Mt. Cotopaxi, Latacunga

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.

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!
