Mapping up structures in Samar Island

Project NOAH (Nationwide Operational Assessment of Hazards) is the Department of Science and Technology’s (DOST) response to the Philippine government’s call for a more accurate, integrated, and responsive disaster prevention and mitigation system, especially in high-risk areas throughout the country. We provide near real-time information to vulnerable communities against impending floods, and to use advanced technology to enhance current geo-hazards vulnerability maps. As we continually aim to strengthen the capabilities of Filipinos in the field of disaster risk reduction, we are now proceeding to a next step of innovation: From hazard mapping to risk mapping.

To address the Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) needs of more communities and individuals, we are sustaining a collaborative mapping effort with the OpenStreetMap (OSM) community. We are engaging Filipino citizens to map their own communities so that disaster preparedness measures will be more effective, especially in identifying hazards and risk exposures in their vicinity.

MapGive

Through the MapGive project, the Humanitarian Information Unit (HIU) of the U.S. Department of State is providing the OpenStreetMap community access to updated satellite imagery services to help assist with humanitarian mapping.

Imagery Details

This imagery is from Digital Globe’s WorldView-3, WorldView-2, and WorldView-1 satellites, and is made up imagery taken on June 24th 2016, March 21st 2016, June 1st 2016, May 18th 2015, July 31st 2016, and June 10th 2016. The imagery has been orthorectified for terrain corrected geographic precision. Additionally, the imagery has been contrast stretched using a custom stretch and processed into a Tiled Map Service (TMS) for performance.

Map all buildings and tag its specific building type:

building=yes for generic buildings

building=commercial for commercial buildings

building=retail for buildings that sell products and services

building=house for residential units

building=residential for multi-storey residential units

building=school for units used for educational institutions

building=church for places of worship

building=industrial for industrial buildings

If you know more information about a certain building, please add important details such as:

address (addr:street=Rizal) (addr:province=Samar) and

number of floors (building:levels=3).

If the building is an evacuation shelter, add the tag evacuation_center=yes.

These tags are needed to be added in the critical infrastructures for an effective disaster operations and infrastructure assessment.
