Task now complete. Thank you all

The Danish, Swiss and British Red Cross are working together to support the Guinea Red Cross (GRC) develop integrated, high quality programmes. The GRC's Reproductive Health and Rights Programme aims at improving knowledge, rights and access to reproductive health in the Labé region, with a focus on women and young people. Community volunteers and midwives are trained to provide access to reproductive and ante-natal care, and information on reproductive and community health. A baseline survey is about to be conducted, gathering data on knowledge of, and access to, reproductive health and rights. Data will be used to measure change throughout, and at the end of, the project.

Currently there is a real lack of spatial data for Guinea at village level which is needed for this baseline survey. After the tracing in this task, Guinea Red Cross volunteers will capture additional village information, such as place names and building type. This will then be added to OpenStreetMap to assist with program operations and decision making. Maps are essential to understand geographical distribution and size of villages to be surveyed, and therefore plan for adequate logistics and training.

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.

When saving your work, please leave the default comment but add what you actually mapped, for example "added buildings and a residential road".

Please trace buildings (building=building in iD or building=yes in JOSM) and map roads and smaller paths for as far as you can follow them (see below for useful tags and resources).

Also, waterways, such as streams and rivers, should be traced.

Commonly used tags and useful resources:

Residential areas:

  • buildings=yes for all buildings

Road networks

  • highway=primary, secondary or tertiary for main roads connecting towns
  • highway=residential inside residential boundaries
  • highway=unclassified connecting smaller villages and hamlets.
  • highway=track only goes to farmland
  • highway=path - not even a 4x4 can get down this

See Highway Africa Tag page for advice on tagging roads and the OSM map features page for more info

Also tag

  • landuse=residential around clusters of houses.
