This task is part of a Missing Maps initiative to add data collected in the field in a variety of formats to OSM. Updating the basemap with highways and residential areas from Bing imagery is required as part of the workflow. Once this task is completed, mappers will digitise data from maps supplied by MSF in the field.
This area in Katanga, Congo (DRC) sees frequent, large-scale medical interventions from local MSF teams.
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.Created by Kareem_A - Updated - Priority: low
Sullana is the Capital of the Sullana Province, in the north-western coastal plains of Peru. The El Nino weather phenomena is associated with an unuasually large waming and changes the local and regional ecology. The heavy rains produced be El Nino have the potential of causing flooding and mudslides. The increased population exposes more people to risks as cities grow and land use increases.Created by tgertin - Updated - Priority: low

MSF teams working in northern Nigeria respond to a variety of different health needs. These include emergency response to disease outbreaks across the area. Accurate maps of the area will assist emergency teams with epidemiological analysis, disease surveillance and logistical planning.

The Gampaha District is an urban and agricultural district located on the Western coast of Sri Lanka just north of Colombo in the Attanagalu Oya River basin. This area is very prone to flooding with important human, material, and financial damages. The goal of this task is to map all the roads and agricultural lands. This data will then be ground-truthed and augmented with attributes as part of the Open Cities, through a climate resilience initiative project of the World Bank.Created by Rbanick - Updated - Priority: low
This project is scheduled will take place on 10 Feb, 2016.
This project will demonstrate the value of crowdsourced and remote mapping to the city of Piura.
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.Created by tgertin - Updated - Priority: low
This project is set up as part of the A Missing Maps party to support the newly launched Map for Environment platform, funded by the World Resource Institute. The aim of the event is to map and capture the location and extent of deforestation in OpenStreetMap for areas in Indonesia during OSM Geo Week. This stunning archipelago has the world's 3rd largest tropical rainforest, but is sadly ranked 2nd for deforestation. Half of Sumatra's forest cover disappeared from 1985 to 2008, and 90% of oil plantation in Kalimantan from 1990-2010 came at the expense of forest cover. This project was initiated by the devastating 2015 fires in Kalimantan that were linked to deforestation, and the desire of the Green School students in Bali to assist their neighbours.Created by mataharimhairi - Updated - Priority: low

This task is part of USAID/OFDA and USGS/VDAP’s continued efforts in DRR mapping of volcanic hazards in Indonesia pre-disaster. Volunteers will create and improve existing infrastructure data, with a focus on tracing buildings, roads, and inland water features.Created by Kerfy - 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!
