We recieved KML files of affected villages affected by landslides via the HOT mailing list. QGIS was used to create a 1 km radius 'buffer' around each affected village to make an individual task in this project. The goal is to do detailed mapping of the village itself, as well as connect it to the main road network for routing, and finally look for alternate routes to the village in case the main road is cut off.

Please do very detailed mapping of these villages. Each village should have all of it's buildings mapped (remember to square them), as well as any roads leading in and out of the village. Finally, please ensure that you follow the roads all the way out to the 'main' road network of the rest of the country so that routing software can find a route to the village. Map leisure=common areas if you find them, as well as any other features you see like man_made=tower and so on.
The task boundary is simply a 1 km radius around the town center, therefore: Do not stop mapping at the task boundary, map as far as needed to connect the roads to the main network and map all buildings in and surrounding the village, even if they fall outside the task boundary.
There is no specific imagery to use for the task, simply use the Bing imagery (available for most villages) and supplement with MapBox if necessary. If there is no imagery for the village please mark it complete, and then 'invalidate' it with a comment stating there is no imagery.
