Large numbers of people have fled violence in Blue Nile State and many thousands have ended up in Doro Refugee Camp. Maps will help NGOs working in the camps improve surveillance for diseases of outbreak potential. By mapping down to the detail of camp structures, medical and logistics teams can estimate population sizes and provide optimum water, sanitation and health services.
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). Unlike HOT's disaster response activations, the Missing Maps tasks facilitate pre-emptive mapping of priority countries to better facilitate disaster response, medical activities and resource allocation when crises occur.

Through the MapGive project, the Humanitarian Information Unit (HIU) is providing the OpenStreetMap community access to updated satellite imagery services to help assist with humanitarian mapping.
