#1396 Missing Maps: Niger State (north), Nigeria (project 1: roads and residential areas )

  • Author: Missing Maps
  • Requesting organization: Médecins Sans Frontières
  • 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 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.

#1382 Sri Lanka - Mapping Road and Infrastructures for Disaster Preparedness and Resilience

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.

#1339 Indonesian Fires 2015 | South Kalimantan - Bahaur

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.

#1251 Missing Maps: Map South Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo (Task 11: Roads and residential areas )

  • Author: Missing Maps
  • Priority: Low

The Democratic Republic of Congo is a priority country for the Missing Maps project. South Kivu is a province of DRC that, for decades, has faced unceasing humanitarian crises. With constantly changing conflicts, seasonal disease epidemics and a population in constant flux, MSF and other NGOs have permanent presences here.

There is no freely available mapping data available for the province, aside from that which has been already generously contributed by the HOT community in response to very specific crises. The Missing Maps has launched the Map South Kivu project to map the entire province, both remotely and through local community mapping. See here for a video introduction to mapping South Kivu.

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!
