This project is designed to build upon the initial success of the USAID OFDA-funded, PDC-implemented InAWARE program as well as investments and activities carried out by DMInnovation (InaSAFE), HOT (OSM), and the MIT Urban Risk Lab (PetaJakarta.org & its CogniCity open source software) to build capacity to incorporate crowdsourced information into existing disaster monitoring and early warning platforms to increase capacity within Indonesia’s disaster management agencies at the national level (BNPB) and within selected provincial centers (BPBD) for effective disaster early warning and decision makingCreated by Dewi Sulistioningrum - Updated - Priority: medium
Les habitants de Ngao connaissent continuellement des problèmes d'accès à l'eau potable tant pour les humanis que pour les animaux, pendant les saisons sèches mais aussi (en raison des inondations) pendant la saison des pluies. Ce projet de cartographie aidera l'équipe Eau et Habitat du CICR à travailler à l'extension du pipeline existant et à la construction d'abreuvoirs à des positions stratégiques.Created by Violaine_Do - Updated - Priority: medium
Advanced contributors only: imagery interpretation difficult
The inhabitants of Ngao continually experience safe and clean water access issues for both human and animal use. This mapping project will help the Water and Habitat team from the ICRC work on the extension of the already existing pipeline and the construction of cattle troughs at strategic positions.Created by Violaine_Do - Updated - Priority: medium
The Peace Corps program in Malawi is requesting assistance in building a base map of Embangweni, to be utilized by clinic staff at the local hospital. The aim of this map is to introduce clinic staff and community members to Information and Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D), while supporting their local health systems. This base map will be the foundation for future health-related GIS programs, as well as other multi-sectoral projects to benefit the community of Embangweni.Created by joe_engmark - Updated - Priority: medium

In Lusaka, around 1.2 million people live in overcrowded ‘informal settlements’ that are at risk of cholera each rainy season. In 2016, the rainy season was delayed, causing boreholes to dry up and forcing the population to use unprotected shallow wells. When the rains came, floodwaters mixed with overfull pit latrines, creating rivers and lakes of contaminated water that people were forced to wade through. This created the ideal environment for cholera and a significant outbreak did occur.
This project supports the local OSM community working with a multiple NGOs response to the cholera crisis and the Lusaka civil authorities efforts to bring improved sanitation services to the people of Lusaka.Created by bgirardot - Updated - Priority: medium
Through this mapping task the Netherlands Red Cross supports the Malawi Red Cross Society to more effectively run a number of projects in different traditional authorities in Malawi.
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 Maarten van der Veen - Updated - Priority: medium
•The Batticaloa District is an urban and agricultural district located on the eastern coast of Sri Lanka in the Mundaniyaru River basin. This area is very prone to flooding which will be caused widespread human, material, environmental losses and financial damages.The goal of this task is to map all the roads,Buildings and agricultural lands.
•This task focuses on one area of Batticaloa District, called the Manmunai S. and Eruvilpattu Divisional Secretariat Divisions (DS Divisions). Other DS Divisions of the Batticaloa District will be mapped through other tasks.Created by Suthakaran - Updated - Priority: medium

Aweil, the capital of South Sudan’s Northern Bahr el Ghazal State, is home to tens of thousands of people, many of whom live on the city’s largely unmapped outskirts. Putting these settlements on the map is the first step to collecting crucial health and demographic data that will help MSF provide essential medical care to this underserved population. Mapping the Aweil region will allow MSF to conduct surveys to learn where patients live, where medical needs are most acute, and where seasonal peaks in illnesses like malaria and malnutrition are likely to occur.Created by JanBohmMSF - Updated - Priority: medium
More than 400,000 persons have left South Sudan for Uganda since the beginning of the year 2016 (in November the average was reported to be 2000/day). Fleeing a terrible humanitarian situation at home, more than 86% of them are women or children. A few months only after its opening, the camp of Bidibidi (in Yumbe district) in Northern Uganda already hosts more than 250,000 refugees. It is then extremely important to get information as recent and accurate as possible on the location of people & infrastructures, to understand their needs and help decision making on water, sanitation and health infrastructures.Created by Violaine_Do - Updated - Priority: medium
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!
