You will be using satellite imagery to map roads, buildings, waterways and open areas. For guideline on remote mapping please refer to this wiki https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nepal_remote_mapping_guide
For list of common tags used in Nepal please refer to this wiki https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nepal/Common_tags
For classification and tagging of roads please refer to this wiki https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nepal/Roads
There is a specific set of guidelines made for tagging features found in Nepal. Please refer to the following google doc for the guidelines https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1G3IcIWp_NTE6bOowbG_2alP0rk2j3jpJL-fMnjEDDgE/edit#gid=0
To be efficient with mapping buildings we suggest you use JOSM with building plugin installed.
