#2665 Cyclone Enawo: Maroantsetra, Madagascar 2 - BUILDINGS TASK - Post-event Imagery

  • Requesting Organization: IFRC
  • Priority: Urgent

This project is for more intermediate and advanced mappers

This is post-event imagery provided by DigitalGlobe

On Tuesday, March 7th, a Cyclone Enawo with windspeeds equivalent to that of a category 4 hurricane, made landfall in the north east of Madagascar. This is the strongest cyclone that has impacted the country in the last 13 years. Much of the nation's roads are dirt, and due to rains and flooding, reaching the most impacted areas will be difficult.

#2655 Missing Maps: Aweil, South Sudan (part 1c - residential areas and buildings)

  • Author: Missing Maps
  • Requesting Organaization: MSF

This task is great for beginners. The data are prepared by MapSwipe, and the buildings are clearly visible on the imagery. Enjoy the mapping and help our teams!

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.

  • Requesting organization : Solidarités International
  • Imagery : Pléiades
  • Level : Beginners

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.

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!
