Task

Select a grid square and map all buildings, roads, paths and major natural features within your allotted area.

When tracing buildings, to get accurate angles reflecting the actual shape of a building, depending on the editor you are using, complete the following:

iD Editor - Click the outline of the building once you have traced it, and use the keyboard shortcut "S" to square the corners

JOSM Editor - Instal and use the Building Tools plugin to allow for fast, accurate tracing of buildings

Tagging Specific Details

Please ensure you follow the Highway Tag Africa criteria when mapping roads or paths.

Pay particular attention where roads/paths intersect with streams or rivers and no bridge/tunnel/culvert exists. Use the ford tag when you find these crossings
