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.

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

This is the third stage of mapping Neya Chiefdom, Sierra Leone. This stage focusses on major highways/roads. Smaller roads (those that do not link settlements together or to larger roads) can be ignored for this task.

Please use the Bing imagery provided.

Major roads:

  • Use highway=tertiary for main roads connecting towns
  • Use highway=unclassified for roads connecting smaller villages and hamlets

Other road tags:

Smaller offshoot roads can be left off for the purposes of this task. However, if you want to map them, the following tags should help.

  • highway=residential inside residential boundaries
  • highway=track only goes to farmland
  • highway=path, narrow footpaths, not even a 4x4 can get down this

Other resources

See Highway Africa Tag page for more advice on tagging roads in Africa.

Please do not delete any other data from this area if you do not know what it is.
