This mapping project is to understand the layout of the community and assist in the upcoming mass distribution of mosquito nets in Zambia. This would also serve as a resource in visually understanding contributing factors to outbreaks of diarrheal diseases and high malaria cases. Once created, this map will serve as a basemap for the region and aid the Peace Corps Public Health program in Zambia.

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

This task focuses on creating a complete transportation network (roads), along with mapping all buildings in Zambia.

Buildings: Please label all buildings as general buildings. Square the corners of all buildings by pressing “S” on your keyboard after labeling the building.

Roads: “The road conditions in Africa do not always correspond to their economic and social role. A road typology should be based on the road importance and not on the surface or the visual appearance of the road”. --Highway Tag Africa, OpenStreetMap Wiki

It can be hard to know the economic and social role of a road, but we can guess that a road is important to trace if it connects other roads, clusters of buildings, or towns and villages. Please use the tags below, taken from the OpenStreetMap Wiki:

Tertiary Road: The roads interconnecting villages and the major streets in towns of some importance.

Residential Road: The roads in residential areas except for major streets that interconnect with various roads (i.e. primary, secondary, tertiary).

Unclassified Road: The roads serving for interconnection of smaller villages and hamlets.

Track: The small roads going outside the residential areas, mainly for agricultural and forestry purposes. In general these roads do not have a connecting function with other roads.
