International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, Practical Action and Kathmandu Living Labs are working together to map flood prone communities of Bardiya and Kailali, Nepal. These digital maps will be used to update and supplement the hand drawn maps created by the villages of this area. With the remotely mapped data from this task the volunteers from CSDR and villagers will conduct field work and improve upon the vulnerability capacity assessment of this area.

Road tagging guide
- highway=primary Road corridors that carries a huge volume of traffic between arterial roads and has a high density of public transport services. These roads often connect two relatively distant localities in urban areas.
- highway=secondary Collector roads that carry lower volume of traffic and has either no public transport service or a lower density of public transport service. These roads often connect two neighboring/nearby localities in urban areas.
- highway=road Roads traced from satellite imagery for which a classification has not been determined yet. This is a temporary tag indicating further ground survey work is required.
- highway=residential General residential roads in a planned locality. Wide enough to carry slow moving residential traffic.
- highway=service Generally for access to (or inside) a building, industrial estate, universities, parks, etc.
- highway=pedestrian Roads that are almost exclusively used by pedestrians and are out of bounds of motor vehicles in normal conditions, such as plazas and squares.
- highway=track Unpaved motorable tracks
Building tagging guide Please use the building plugin in JOSM for tracing buildings.
