Due to the actual conflict, inhabitants of the area run away along Samarra - Tikrit axis. Terre des hommes, in order to act on the field from june 2016, needs to know where theses IDP's are located.
Thanks to your contribution building OSM datas, Tdh will be able to evaluate more easily living conditions of displaced populations, in order to plan in a better way their water access and sanitation program (toilets, watering places, etc.)
The Missing Maps project aims to map the most vulnerable places in the world (affected by humanitarian crises: disease epidemics, conflicts, natural disasters, poverty, environmental crisis). Building on HOT's disaster preparedness projects, the Missing Maps tasks facilitates pre-emptive mapping of priority countries to facilitate disaster response, medical activities and resource allocations when crisis occurs.

Access to this imagery is limited by the NextView license agreement.
You need to review and acknowledge the agreement.
You could have nothing to map on specific tasks, don't hesitate to mark them as complete if that's the case!
This imagery is from Digital Globe’s GeoEye-1 satellite, and is made up of images taken on December 8th 2014. The images are orthorectified for terrain corrected geographic precision. Additionally, the images have been contrast stretched using a custom stretch and processed into a Tiled Map Service (TMS) for performance.
Please be careful of the shift between Bing imagery and this TMS; so don't duplicate information ! You need to align TMS position to Bing imagery position (or existing road network).
You could as well use Bing imagery as an other (but older) information source if you have doubts with DG imagery. But keep in mind that DG imagery is the reference.
For mapping buildings, please use the tag building = yes
Please square up your buildings once it's done with the "S" key in ID (or Q in JOSM).
Please remember, you are mapping the footprint of the building, so please try and align the building shape with the base of the building and not the top.
Correct building mapping example: Buildings mapped at the top vs buildings mapped at the base
Do only map residential and/or unclassified roads. You don't need to map path or tracks on this project! It's very likely that you won't have any road to map on this area as this is already really well mapped.
Residential Road: The roads in residential areas, except major roads (i.e. primary, secondary, tertiary).
Unclassified Road: The roads serving for interconnection of smaller villages and hamlets. A road connecting two dwellings should be tagged as highway=unclassified (and not track or path event if it is not suitable for vehicles).
Do not map tracks: the small roads going outside the residential areas, mainly for agricultural and forestry purposes. In general these roads do not have a connecting function with other roads.
Always connect roads to other roads where they meet and never end roads on Residential or other area polygon edges.
