The Peace Corps program in Senegal is requesting assistance in creating a base map for the city of Kedougou. The map data will be used by the local health system to track incidence of malaria and to improve services for people living with HIV in the city. More detailed basemap data -- roads and buildings -- is needed.Created by CourtneyMClark - Updated - Priority: low

The 5,000 residents of Silvinos Lobos and the 13,000 people located in the surrounding areas live in difficult conditions of underdevelopment and marginalization due to the lack of most essential services. This mapping project will help the process of improving the area's water system.Created by bgirardot - Updated - Priority: low
The Philippine Red Cross, with partners including the American Red Cross, continues Typhoon Haiyan recovery operations in Leyte. They will use the more accurate and complete data of these areas in the management and monitoring of their programs. The Philippines is regularly subject to natural disasters such as typhoons and earthquakes, and the data will also support preparedness initiatives and future disaster responses.

The Peace Corps Education program in Mozambique is requesting assistance creating a basemap of Mocuba. The map will be used as the base for Field Paper activities within a youth map literacy and mapmaking program. The map will also be used by community members to identify geographic areas of interest for community development and aid efforts. More detailed basemap data (roads, villages, streets) is needed to assist the program.Created by Choquette33 - Updated - Priority: low
The Peace Corps Rural Community Health program in Benin is requesting assistance inventorying buildings and roads. A more detailed basemap is needed for use in testing, treating and tracking cases of malaria in children under five years of age. The map data will be used by the local health structure to display malaria trends in this highly vulnerable population. This project is being conducted under the scope of Peace Corps' innovative PECADOM+/ProACT pilot.Created by Choquette33 - Updated - Priority: low
The Peace Corps Public Health program in Botswana is requesting assistance to inventory buildings and roads for HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment programs. Francistown is the second largest city in Botswana and suffers one of the highest rates of HIV in Botswana due to the fact that it is a stopover for many travelers, both domestic and foreign. It can be difficult to reach the entirety of Francistown's population -- over 100,000 -- with HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention programs. With the help of OpenStreetMap, the District AIDS Office along with the District Health Management Team, plans to map the entirety of Francistown. Upon completion of the map these organizations will be able to better analyze areas with high rates of HIV/AIDS. The Health Management team also plans to use OSM and geospatial data to improve operations of its tuberculosis and sexually transmitted infection clinics.Created by Choquette33 - Updated - Priority: low
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.).
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!
