Lubumbashi has been partially mapped at the request of MSF to help the organisation respond to the frequent disease outbreaks that hit the city. Missing Maps / HOT will be running training for volunteers in Lubumbashi (starting on the 17th July) to help complete the field mapping, so that MSF can use the data in outbreak surveillance and response.
To conduct effective epidemiology, building level data is needed, and while Lubumbashi is very well mapped, a lot of neighbourhoods are lacking in this area. Please help us complete the tracing, so that the data can be used in the coming weeks.
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.

- #MissingMaps #hotosm-project-1146 Lubumbashi, Congo (DRC) 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.
Then tag as building=building (in iD) or building=yes (in JOSM).
