Before you begin mapping please review the Malaria Prevention in Mozambique tracing guide. This guide provides pictures and information on features needed to support Malaria prevention efforts in Mozambique.

As the lead foreign assistance agency for the US Government, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), along with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Peace Corps are working together to implement the 2015 - 2020 President’s Malaria Initiative Strategy in Mozambique. Malaria prevention and control remains a major U.S. foreign assistance objective and PMI's Strategy fully aligns with the U.S. Government's vision of ending preventable child and maternal deaths and ending extreme poverty. Under the PMI Strategy, the U.S. Government's goal is to work with PMI-supported countries and partners to further reduce malaria deaths and substantially decrease malaria morbidity, towards the long-term goal of elimination. More information can be found at www.pmi.gov

Data created from this mapping effort will help Indoor Residual Spraying programs in Mozambique plan for the upcoming spray campaign. After the base map is completed by remote mappers, Peace Corps Volunteers in Zambezia Province will work with their Mozambican counterparts to complete Field Papers in key villages and towns and add local knowledge to OSM.

This data is intended to help PMI with project scope and spray planning. IRS teams apply insecticide to the walls of houses to kill mosquitoes which transmit malaria. These updated maps will help make smart choices on exactly where to spray, and improve spray team activities by providing project managers with improved estimates of the number of households and structures.

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

This task focuses on tracing buildings and creating a complete transportation network (roads) for the Zambezia Province, Mozambique.

Before you begin mapping please review the Malaria Prevention in Mozambique tracing guide. This guide provides pictures and information on features needed to support Malaria prevention efforts in Mozambique.

Buildings: Please label all buildings as general buildings. Square the corners of all buildings by pressing “S” on your keyboard after labeling the building.

Roads: The road conditions in Africa do not always correspond to their economic and social role. It can be hard to know the economic and social role of a road, but we can guess that a road is important if it connects other roads, clusters of buildings, or towns and villages. "Road classification should be based on the road importance and not on the surface or the visual appearance of the road”. --Highway Tag Africa, OpenStreetMap Wiki

For more information, please visit: Highway Tag Africa Tagging Guide.

Tracing tips:

Save often when editing long linear features such as waterways or roads. These features are continuous and appear in multiple cells across the project area which can cause errors when edited by multiple users.
