Project Specific Mapping Notes

  • IMAGERY - Bing will be the best imagery for most of this project. Use Mapbox where Bing has clouds. There will be some spots where both Bing and Mapbox have clouds, just do your best to see as much as you can.
  • Split task squares as needed if there are too many roads to comfortably map.
  • No paths or tracks - Foot paths and tracks (roads that only go to or through farmland) should not be mapped. You will find some already mapped, but do not map any more.
  • Very large squares - This is on purpose and should make mapping easier because you are only mapping roads. You can split them if you need to.
  • The area of the project is a bit smaller than some of the large task squares around the outside of the project area. Do not spend time mapping roads that are not really part of the project, but just happen to be covered by the large task squares.

Roads

  • Please map roads as completely as possible by connecting them to the main road networks where ever possible.
  • Very short segments that do not connect to anything should not be mapped.
  • Short segments of a road that you cannot see through the trees but seem very likely to exist should be mapped to keep the road complete
  • Try and map a little beyond your task square so the person who maps the task square next to yours can easily connect them.
  • Always connect roads to other roads where they meet and never end roads on Residential area polygon edges.

You will most often use the following road classifications (JOSM):

  • highway=primary Most of these will already be mapped, but if you find them not complete please map. They are major roads that connect large cities and run for very long distances.
  • highway=secondary Most of these will already be mapped, but if you find them not complete, please map. These run from primary roads to service other parts of the region and usually run for long distances.
  • highway=tertiary These roads are larger and longer than 'unclassified' roads, but not as major as 'secondary' roads. It can be hard to tell unclassified from tertiary, but unclassified is usually only in rural areas connecting small settlements.
  • highway=unclassified - This is for roads that a vehicle with 4 wheels could travel on that connect small villages and settlements and can have buildings along the. They are not 'residential' because they connect settlements as well are not just for access to residential areas.
  • highway=residential - These are roads that are in settlements that only are used for access to houses and buildings.
  • highway=track - Do NOT map. These are the roads that run only to or among farm fields for access to farm fields.

Review Highway Tag Africa - An excellent guild to typical humanitarian road mapping if you need to, the same mapping guidelines apply here.
