In this area, MSF operations address infant and maternal mortality. To develop a strong community-based component for these health activities, field teams need reliable data on the location of settlements and population numbers. It is also important for health surveillance activities, so that teams can identify where people are worst affected.
Teams on the ground will also gather information on health facilities, road networks and access (for referral and supply systems), and border crossing points and routes. This will enhance the MSF's capacity for epidemiological surveillance, especially with regard to haemorrhagic fever cases, in the area.
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-1877, #MissingMaps, #SierraLeone #bing Added #buildings When saving your work, please leave the default comment but add what you actually mapped, for example "added buildings and a residential road".
Zoom in and click on a village outline to start mapping, or click Take a task at random on the Contribute tab.
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 or 'Q' in JOSM) the corners of square/rectangular buildings OR ROUND OFF/CIRCLE (shortcut key = 'O' in iD editor or 'shift O' in JOSM) any huts.
Then tag as building=building (in iD) or building=yes (in JOSM).
There is a good video on how to map buildings here, if you are new to editing OSM.
If you see a building that looks like it is incomplete (roof missing for example), please still tag it as a building.
Please do not delete any other data from this area if you do not know what it is.
