Please map in detail.
Trace all the buildings you can see. This is an essential information for the Red Cross. In some densely populated areas you may not be able to trace all the buildings, just do the best you can. Buildings should only be done after all the roads in the area are finished though.
Trace also the roads, tag them according to the Highway Tag Africa wiki page.
In addition to the normal imagery layer listed below, here is a josm remote link for a second version of the Spot 6 imagery in the near infrared band which makes it a lot easier to see roads and buildings.
Note that this job is an extension of job 489, where imagery without clouds - or with clouds in other places - can be found in overlapping areas. To map in these areas, you might want to switch between layers, to select the most appropriate one.
