  • Author: Missing Maps
  • Requesting organization: Netherlands Red Cross
  • Priority: Low

The Netherlands Red Cross is supporting Croix Rouge Benin to decrease the number of children under 5 suffering from waterborne and oro-fecal diseases in the boroughs of Kessounou (common Dangbo) and Zoungamé (common Aguégués) in the department of Ouémé, Benin. One of the activities to achieve this is to perform field assessments that identify vulnerable people. Detailed maps of the project area are vital to properly undertake the assessment.

The Netherlands Red Cross will also start investing in a local OSM / HOT community in Benin and is seeking opportunities to provide the necessary training and resources where needed.

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.

#hotosm-project-1132 #MissingMaps #Benin
When saving your work, please leave the default comment but add what you actually mapped, for example "added buildings and a residential road".

Please click on a square to start mapping.

Use Bing imagery for this project.

Simply digitise the outline of all buildings in each square and make sure you either SQUARE (shortcut key = 'S' in iD editor) the corners of square/rectangular buildings OR ROUND OFF/CIRCLE (shortcut key = 'O' in iD editor) any huts.

Roads that lead to buildings should be traced and tagged as stated below.

Building tags:

  • building=building (in iD)
  • building=yes (in JOSM).

Road tags

  • highway=residential (in iD and JOSM)

Further tagging resources: See Highway Africa Tag page for further advice on tagging roads and the OSM map features page for more info.
