#1699 Missing Maps: Tastsuno Building Maping

Tastuno has traditional Samurai's houses in Hyogo prifecture, Japan. But big river exist at Tatsuno's core area. Sometimes, river flood happened. This project means pre-mapping for disaster situation. Please input small houses in Tatsuno area. Those data will help to local people, we think.

#1695 Missing Maps: Fungurume, Katanga Province, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)

  • Author: Missing Maps
  • Requesting organization: MSF
  • Priority: Low

Fungurume has been partially mapped through another HOT project, but to conduct effective epidemiology, building level data is needed, and a lot of neighbourhoods in Fungurume are lacking in this area. Please help us complete the tracing of buildings and residential roads, so that the data can be used by MSF teams.

This area of Katanga sees frequent disease outbreaks and the MSF Katanga Emergency Response Unit has identified it as a priority area for mapping.

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.

#1673 Missing Maps: Binga, Zimbabwe

  • Author: Missing Maps
  • Requesting Org: American and Zimbabwe Red Cross
  • Priority: Medium

Please follow instructions regarding mapping roads in this task.

Annual flooding and recurring drought have devastating impacts on communities in Southern Africa. In the Zambezi River basin, seasonal weather patterns often result in crop failure, shelter damage, livestock death, soil erosion and increased water and sanitation issues. Since late 2011, the American Red Cross has been working with communities in Binga district, Zimbabwe to identify and mitigate common hazards, as well as implement small-scale resilience projects such as latrine construction to improve household hygiene and building fuel-efficient cookstoves to reduce environmental degradation. At the same time, the American Red Cross is strengthening the capacity of the Zimbabwe Red Cross through trainings and community contingency planning support.

#1655 Missing Maps: Kambove, Katanga Province, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)

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

Kambove has been partially mapped through another HOT project, but to conduct effective epidemiology, building level data is needed, and a lot of neighbourhoods in Likasi are lacking in this area. Please help us complete the tracing of buildings and residential roads, so that the data can be used by MSF teams when disease outbreaks occur.

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).

#1641 Urban Ark Project: Karonga, Malawi mapping

  • Requesting organisation King's College London (as part of Urban Ark Project)
  • Author: HOT
  • Priority: Low

Karonga is a small town in Northern Malawi. The population is less than 50,000 but growing at a rate of around 2.5% per year, which could result in a doubling of population over the next 30 - 40 years. Karonga suffers from a range of hazards which include: earthquakes, floods, strong winds, food insecurity, pests, disease, lightning, hail and fires, which have resulted in fatalities, health and economic impacts over the past decades. Under scenarios of high population growth, urbanisation and climate variability, it is quite possible that residents could experience greater impacts from hazards in Karonga in the coming years.

To better understand what structures might be impacted by hazards such as earthquakes and floods, and how people and goods move about during a disaster, there is a clear need to improve our understanding of the built infrastructure in Karonga. This data will be used by teams in the UK and Malawi to better understand scenarios of hazard impacts upon the infrastructure of Karonga, under the DfID-ESRC funded Urban Africa Risk Knowledge Project (Urban ARK). We hope this improved basemap of Karonga will also help the many other NGOs and community projects that work in the area on topics such as development, sanitation and health.

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!
