#2782 Missing maps: Tete, Mozambique

  • Author: Missing Maps
  • Requesting Organaization: MSF
  • Map Feature: Buildings and road network

A cholera epidemic affects the Mozambique since the beginning of the year. Several regions are concerned and even the capital Maputo knows many cases. The peak of the epidemic appears behind us, but the country remains an endemic area for cholera. Some places in the north and in the west are regularly faced with killing waves. Therefore, it is highly necessary to proceed to a substantive treatment of the epidemic. Following the recommendation of the emergency team which had been sent to the field in early March, Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has taken the decision to launch a vaccination campaign of the population.

#2819 Imvepi Refugee Camp, Maracha District, Uganda

  • Author: Missing Maps / British Red Cross
  • Requesting organization: Red Cross
  • Priority: High
  • Imagery: Digital Globe

An escalation of violence in South Sudan since July 2016 has lead to a large population movement into the north of neighboring Uganda. One of the area’s first camps, Bidibidi, was originally anticipated to hold 40,000 persons, however now holds 270,000 people, making it one of the largest refugee camps in the world. Elsewhere, the camps at Palorinya and Rhino are similarly growing, and a new camp at Imvepi is under development.

This task looks to map the Impevi Refugee settlement, where a British Red Cross team has been deployed to the area to set up Water, Sanitation & Health (WASH) facilities.

#2818 Zone 3, Bidibidi Refugee Camp, Yumbe Area, Uganda, Camp - WatSan (Step 1)

  • Author : Missing Maps / CartONG
  • Requesting organization : MSF
  • Priority : Medium
  • Imagery : Digital Globe

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.

#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.

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!
