#3483 Missing Maps: Peru (2)

  • Author: Missing Maps
  • Requesting Org: Red Cross Climate Centre
  • Map Feature: Buildings and Roads

The Forecast-based Financing (FbF) project in Peru, by the Red Cross Climate Centre, intends to support the vulnerable people of the Amazonas flood plain exposed to severe floods. Given the high risk of water vector-borne diseases and damage to houses, the Peruvian Red Cross with the support of the German Red Cross are developing a FbF mechanism, based on forecast information, to support families in a timely manner to conduct mitigation and preparedness actions to minimize these risks due to their vulnerability and exposure to floods. Exposure data is still a challenge, as existing maps do not show clearly where households are located, therefore having a map of the existing communities, will help us to analyse the extend of potential affectation based on historical data and it will allow us to prioritize in a more effective way the most exposed and vulnerable households.

#3344 Missing Maps: Kyalkiat, Myanmar

  • Author: Missing Maps
  • Requesting Organization: American Red Cross

This task is being used for an event, please refrain from mapping unless you are part of that event. If interested, sort the tasking manager by priority to see a list of current high priority tasks that could use your help!

The Red Cross is mapping the Ayeyarwady Delta area in Myanmar as part of a multi-year mapping and data readiness activity to better understand where critical infrastructure and roads are to inform decision making during potential disasters. As recently as 2008 a cyclone killed at least 77,000 people with over 55,900 missing, and left about 2.5 million homeless. The map data will help the Red Cross to better understand where people live in relation to potential hazards so that we can help them be prepared for the disaster and so national decision makers can make better decisions in the immediate aftermath of a disaster.

#3389 Tanzania Development Trust: Manyoni district mapping project part 2

  • Author: HOT
  • Requesting Organization: Tanzania Development Trust
  • Priority: Medium

Manyoni district in eastern Tanzania has a 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.

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.

#3453 Arua District Part 1

Author: Missing Maps / HOT Uganda Requesting organization: HOT Uganda Priority: Medium * Imagery: Digital Globe

An escalation of violence in South Sudan since July 2016 has lead to a large population movement into the north of neighboring Uganda. An estimated rate of between 2,000 and 3,000 displaced persons cross the border into Uganda each day. In a rapidly developing situation such as this, it is vital that accurate and up-to-date mapping information is available to allow the ERU to respond more effectively and efficiently.

#3253 Tanzania Development Trust: Manyoni district mapping project

  • Author: HOT
  • Requesting Organization: Tanzania Development Trust
  • Priority: Medium

Singida district in eastern Tanzania has a 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 want to finish this map by mid July when community mappers funded by a HOT Microgrant will start field mapping.

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!
