#1980 Missing Maps: Nyamburu, Kenya

Please only map as part of the Multiconsult mapping event

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.

#1976 Missing Maps: Neya Chiefdom, Sierra Leone (Road networks)

  • Requesting organisation: MSF
  • Author: Missing Maps

In this area, MSF operations address infant and maternal mortality. To develop a strong community-based component for these health activities, field teams need reliable data on the location of settlements and population numbers. It is also important for health surveillance activities, so that teams can identify where people are worst affected.

Teams on the ground will also gather information on health facilities, road networks and access (for referral and supply systems), and border crossing points and routes. This will enhance the MSF's capacity for epidemiological surveillance, especially with regard to haemorrhagic fever cases, in the area.

#1974 Milange District, Mozambique II -- Africa Indoor Residual Spraying Campaign

This project directly supports programs under the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), which was launched in 2005 with the goal to reduce malaria-related mortality by 50 percent across sub-Saharan Africa. The OpenStreetMap data created through this task will be used to plan the logistics of an Indoor Residual Spraying campaign in Milange.

Before you begin mapping please review the Malaria Prevention in Mozambique tracing guide. This guide provides pictures and information on features needed to support Malaria prevention efforts in Mozambique.

#1969 Missing Maps: Hadjer Lamis, Chad (Task 4 - residential areas and buildings)

  • Author: Missing Maps
  • Requesting Organization: MSF

The Hadjer Lamis area of Chad is very poor, and there is an unusual burden of disease and malnutrition amongst the people who live there, which contributes to high mortality in children under five years old. In order to better understand, assess, and respond to this, we need to know more about the population.

MSF teams are mapping villages and taking their names on the ground, but identifying all of the inhabited areas and counting the structures is much more efficient from aerial photos. Knowing where all of the villages are scattered through the savanna helps us to map them, and counting the buildings within each village gives us a quick and fairly accurate method to estimate population. This is important to help MSF understand the spread of disease and identify areas of highest need.

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!
