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.
South Sudan is one of the places prioritised by Missing Maps. So far, mapping in South Sudan has been conducted in response to Médecins Sans Frontières' requests for base mapping. The maps have been used by MSF to plan household surveys and rapid nutritional assessment, which both help provide vital information on the health of the population.
This task is the second stage of the Missing Maps providing pre-emptive mapping for South Sudan as a whole, beginning with Unity State. The aim of the task is to map all buildings within the outlined residential areas, ready for future tasks which will then focus on local roads, tracks and paths. The next step is to expand this pre-emptive mapping to other states within South Sudan.

This is the second stage in providing pre-emptive mapping of Unity State in South Sudan, which focuses on mapping all buildings within the residential areas.
Please click on a task to start mapping. Each task represents one residential area within Unity State, whether a hamlet, village, or town.
Simply digitise the outline of the building and make sure you either SQUARE (shortcut key = 'S') the corners of square/rectangular buildings OR ROUND OFF/CIRCLE (shortcut key = 'O') any huts.
Then tag as building=yes or building=building .
Once you've completed a task, please mark your task as done and select a new task.
If your area already has buildings mapped, please move on to a new task.
Please ask if you have any further questions.
