- Requesting organization: MSF
MSF teams, in collaboration with the Congolese Ministry of Health, provide care for thousands of people in Masisi General Hospital and other health centres in the area, including the provision of HIV care. MSF also organises mobile clinics, which respond to the needs of people affected by violence, insecurity and poor access to healthcare, some of whom have have been forced to flee their homes.
Mapping this area will help MSF to identify vulnerable populations, plan and manage medical interventions and provide better care for those displaced by violence.
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.
Satellite imagery for this project is kindly provided by Digital Globe through their +Vivid service.

- #hotosm-project-1978, #MissingMaps, Masisi #CongoDRC Added #settlements using DG +Vivid 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 first stage of mapping in Masisi Territory, North Kivu, Congo (DRC) and focusses on residential areas.
Please use the +Vivid imagery provided (this should open automatically in JOSM and iD). If there is cloud cover, try MapBox imagery.
Please choose a square and scan it for residential areas. If you find settlements that are already mapped, please check the accuracy of the boundary. If you find settlements that haven't been mapped, please trace the boundary of the area and tag it.
Residential areas are composed of more than two houses and are tagged with landuse=residential.
Feel free to split the square you are working on if you feel it is too big...
Please do not delete any other data from this area if you do not know what it is.
