Galeras is an active Andean stratovolcano that is located in the Narino department, near Pasto (population: 450,000 Colombians). Galeras is the most active volcano in Colombia and is known for regular eruptions, the most recent occurring in 2000, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2007, and 2010.
This task will be focusing on small cities north of the volcano. This includes Narino, La Florida, Santa Rosa, Santa Barbara, and Sandona.
Volunteers will create and improve existing infrastructure data, with a focus on tracing buildings, roads, bridges, and inland water features.
Through the MapGive project, the Humanitarian Information Unit (HIU) of the U.S. Department of State is providing the OpenStreetMap community access to updated satellite imagery services to help assist with humanitarian mapping.
