- Aweil, South Sudan #MissingMaps #buildings #settlements #hotosm-project-2393 When saving your work, please leave the default comment but add what you actually mapped, for example "added buildings and a residential road".
Have a look at this OSM diary before you start - it gives insight into how villages and buildings in Aweil appear on the ground and will help you with your mapping!
Please use the Bing imagery provided.
Trace and tag residential areas and the buildings inside them.
Please outline residential areas (more than two buildings / structures) and tag as landuse=residential (in JOSM) or Landuse Features=Residential Areas (in iD). Try to trace around all of the compounds, not just the houses; the compounds often extend well past the inner circle of houses but are definitely part of the village. You should be able to see compounds as they usually have a fence around them.
Buildings are generally round huts and should be tagged as Building Features=Building in iD and building=yes in JOSM.
This is the first stage of a three part process. The data in this task were pre-processed with MapSwipe.
Please download the global grid (gpx format) of this project and open it in JOSM in addition to the usual imagery and OSM database layers.
