#2705 Zone 1, Bidibidi Refugee Camp, Yumbe Area, Uganda, Camp - WatSan (Step 1)

For JOSM users only

  • Author : Missing Maps / CartONG
  • Requesting organization : MSF
  • Priority : Medium
  • Imagery : Pleiade/ADS

More than 400,000 persons have left South Sudan for Uganda since the beginning of the year 2016 (in November the average was reported to be 2000/day). Fleeing a terrible humanitarian situation at home, more than 86% of them are women or children. A few months only after its opening, the camp of Bidibidi (in Yumbe district) in Northern Uganda already hosts more than 250,000 refugees. It is then extremely important to get information as recent and accurate as possible on the location of people & infrastructures, to understand their needs and help decision making on water, sanitation and health infrastructures.

#2261 Tanzania Development Trust: Serengeti district mapping project part 2

  • Author: HOT
  • Requesting Organization: Tanzania Development Trust
  • 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.

#2520 Missing Maps: Aweil, South Sudan (part 2a - residential areas and buildings)

  • Author: Missing Maps
  • Requesting Organization: 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.

#2501 Tanzania Development Trust: Simiyu district mapping project part 1

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

Simiyu 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.

#2728 Zambia - Peace Corps Public Health Program

This mapping project is to understand the layout of the community and assist in the upcoming mass distribution of mosquito nets in Zambia. This would also serve as a resource in visually understanding contributing factors to outbreaks of diarrheal diseases and high malaria cases. Once created, this map will serve as a basemap for the region and aid the Peace Corps Public Health program in Zambia.

#2665 Cyclone Enawo: Maroantsetra, Madagascar 2 - BUILDINGS TASK - Post-event Imagery

  • Requesting Organization: IFRC
  • Priority: Urgent

This project is for more intermediate and advanced mappers

This is post-event imagery provided by DigitalGlobe

On Tuesday, March 7th, a Cyclone Enawo with windspeeds equivalent to that of a category 4 hurricane, made landfall in the north east of Madagascar. This is the strongest cyclone that has impacted the country in the last 13 years. Much of the nation's roads are dirt, and due to rains and flooding, reaching the most impacted areas will be difficult.

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!
