The World Health Organization (WHO), Doctors Without Borders (DWB/MSF), IFRC and other humanitarian organizations are deploying for the Ebola epidemic going on there. More detailed basemap data (roads, villages, streets) is needed to assist in the response.

The purpose of this task is to trace buildings for the areas not already covered by other jobs in the city of Monrovia.

Compare Mapbox and Bing Imagery for the square you map and decide which one is clearer for this zone. Indicate appropriate source on your changeset. The Mapbox imagery is opened automatically with this Task and it is possible to zoom at lower zooms. Note that the Mapbox is of lower resolution then Bing for this area.

Justification

There is a resurgence of the Ebola outbreak, and a risk of the epidemic spreading with the multiplication of sites of infection. In the urban areas, there humanitarian organizations necessitate detailed tracing including all the buildings. The World Health Organization (WHO), DWB/MSF (MSF) or the Red Cross / Red Crescent societies (redcross) are deploying in Liberia and Sierra Leone where sites of infection have been identified.
