#3177 Tanzania Development Trust: Simiyu district mapping project part 1 - Updated Imagery

  • 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.

#2894 Missing Maps: Kangyidaunt, Myanmar

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

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.

Through the MapGive project, the Humanitarian Information Unit (HIU) of the U.S. Department of State is providing the OpenStreetMap community access to updated satellite imagery services to help assist with humanitarian mapping.

#3258 Ghana Road Network

  • Author: OSM Ghana
  • Requesting Org: OSM Ghana
  • Map Feature: Roads Only
  • Imagery: Bing and GPS Traces. Use Digital Globe Premium & Standard for checks.

This task is better for advanced mappers.

The aim of this project is to improve the major road network in Ghana by filling in gaps and adding missing roads and missing connections, connecting or fixing roads that are not connected to anything else, moving roads that may be misaligned from GPS traces, and fixing incorrect road classifications.

#2989 Tanzania Development Trust: Kulimi district community mapping project

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

Kulimi district in central 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. This area will shortly be mapped by community mappers as part of a HOT Microgrant, so base maps are needed before that.

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.

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!
