Task

Select a grid square and map all settlements, roads and major natural features, particularly rivers & streams within your allotted area.

Buildings are not required to be traced as part of this task

Tagging Specific Details

When tracing settlements, draw an outline of the area which contains a cluster of buildings and tag as landuse=residential

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

Be aware when tracing rivers or streams that the direction of your tracing must match the flow of the water i.e. don't trace a river uphill

Imagery Info
  • Use Bing or MapBox satellite.
  • No offset required

Note - It can be useful to switch between Bing & MapBox imagery if you are having difficulty identifying features as there can be a variation in the imagery quality between the two.


Entities to Map
