MSF HIV-SGBV Rustenburg Project operates in the Platinum Mining Belt. The project consists primarily of care and service provision for victims of Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV), particularly critical in this region. It includes the running of a standalone clinic managed directly by MSF, as well as two clinics integrated into existing local CHCs. It also includes the training and capacitation of staff within the Health sector, health promotion in local population (prevention and treatment of consequences of SGBV, particularly on HIV/AIDS) and awareness raise about SGBV issues in the Mining Belt.

MSF services various informal settlements along the platinum mining belt, however very little spatial information is available about the characteristics of SGBV incidence and demographics, and basic services availability amongst these different settlements. This mapping will be a powerful help to improve efficiency of MSF daily activities, deepen our understanding of access to basic services, and act as a support layer to further GIS analysis of SGBV incidents to better match future activities with ground needs.

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.

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

This mapping project focuses on buildings and missing roads.

Please start with the priority areas in red.

Imagery

Please use Bing imagery for mapping as it is the most up-to-date imagery available. By default, Afrique du Sud CD:NGI aerien imagery is set up, please do not use it.

Be careful : The imagery from Bing is offset (in space) with respect to reality.

In the ID editor:

  • Click button Base Map on the right pannel (or shortcut B) and then chose 'Bing Aerial Imagery'
  • From this menu “Background settings” (shortcut, “B” key), choose “Adjust imagery offset”. Adjust the image visually. Recommended values are: “2.84; -6.27”

In JOSM: From the menu “Imagery/New offset”, enter the values: “2.84; -6.27”.

Buildings

For mapping buildings, please use the tag building = yes

Please square up your buildings once it's done with the "S" key in ID (or Q in JOSM).

Roads

You shouldn't have that much road to map, if you see few missing ones please use :

  • highway=residential inside residential boundaries

Smaller offshoot roads could be left off unless they link different areas of habitation:

  • highway=unclassified roads only if connecting small villages and hamlets

  • highway=path, narrow footpaths, not even a 4x4 can get down this You shouldn't have to use higher levels highway=primary, highway=secondary or highway=tertiary unless for the main roads connecting towns.

See Highway Africa Tag page for advice on tagging roads.
