The World Health Organization (WHO), Doctors Without Borders (DWB/MSF), 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 West II Chiefdom of Freetown.
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 (redcross) are deploying in Liberia and Sierra Leone where sites of infection have been identified.
