#2712 Missing Maps: Kenema, Sierra Leone (part 5 - 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.

#2707 Missing Maps: Dedaye, Myanmar 2

  • 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.

#2701 Peru Flood Support 5: Pampa Pacta, Punta Hermosa

Easy mapping with extremely high resolution drone imagery

HOT is supporting the local OSM community in Peru to improve the basemap in areas affected by recent flooding. This project may not be easy for beginners as it involves mapping multiple features and preserving connectivity of the road network and waterways across task squares.

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!
