#2164 Missing Maps: Masisi territory, North Kivu, DRC (roads part 3)

Validators, please validate residential areas and road networks!

  • Author: Missing Maps / HOT
  • Requesting organization: MSF

MSF teams, in collaboration with the Congolese Ministry of Health, provide care for thousands of people in Masisi General Hospital and other health centres in the area, including the provision of HIV care. MSF also organises mobile clinics, which respond to the needs of people affected by violence, insecurity and poor access to healthcare, some of whom have have been forced to flee their homes.

Mapping this area will help MSF to identify vulnerable populations, plan and manage medical interventions and provide better care for those displaced by violence.

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.

Satellite imagery for this project is kindly provided by Digital Globe through their +Vivid service.

#2160 Missing Maps: Haiti, Cite Gerard, Bois Nuef, Cite Soleil - Buildings

Part of Concern/Esri Ireland mapathon, please only map as part of that event

Concern Worldwide is working with communities in Port au Prince to make sustainable improvements in poverty levels and mitigate against risks of conflict and disasters. While some areas of Cite Soleil have been mapped a number of areas are still missing basic information such as buildings and roads, which makes planning and implementing projects more difficult. This collaborative project aims to enhance and provide more useful details to the maps available for Concern Worldwide and partners to reach areas most in need of assistance and to produce open source visualisations of the urban and rural environments that communities live and work in. The Aerial imagery is provided by Cosmha, Cartong and OSM France as part of the UAV mission done in May 2014.

#2155 Osh, Kyrgyz Republic - Exposure Mapping for Seismic Risk Assessment

Project Details

  • Goal: Seismic risk assessment
  • Author: World Bank GFDRR
  • Requesting organization: World Bank GFDRR / GFZ-Potsdam / CAIAG / Arup
  • Priority: Medium
  • Imagery: Bing

The Kyrgyz Republic is located in a region of high seismic hazard. In addition, the typical buildings in the region are susceptible to damage from seismic hazards (e.g. earthquake ground shaking). The population in the region is therefore exposed to the combination of high seismic hazards and vulnerable building stock.

This World Bank-supported project aims to collect exposure data on buildings and infrastructure that will be used in a nationwide seismic risk assessment study. The project is held in conjunction with key government agencies and local university departments in Kyrgyz Republic, which will help ground truth the OSM data created through volunteer remote mapping.

TIMELINE: A community mapping event will take place in Bishkek, Kyrgyz Republic, on October 8-9, where local volunteers from universities and government agencies will map assets vulnerable to seismic hazard.

Objects to trace

  • Buildings, roads, railways, bridges, residential areas

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!
