Trace polygons around schools, place of worship and markets. Add the appropriate tag to each.
Schools School areas are easily identified as 1 or 2 long builidngs at the edge of the village often with two small toilet buildings behind them. The schools are almost always accompanied by a large open area for the children to play in, tag the whole area of the school complex with amenity=school and trace the school buildings and bathrooms.
Place of worship Mosques with minarets or churches should be relatively easy to identify. Trace a polygon around the whole area with tag amenity=place_of_worship.
Settlements In Bamako, do not trace small polygons for each section of houses between streets. A large polygon cover the city. In villages, trace a polygon around clusters of houses. Tag with landuse=residential. Mark large open areas (not fields, just smooth open ground next to towns) as leisure=common as these are potential helicopter landing sites.
Markets Trace polygon around markets with tag amenity=marketplace and fixme=confirm if marketplace and add name. Markets can be identified by looking for man smallish buildings, sometimes with one large building near the center, all clustered tightly together. These small buildings are individual market stalls where vendors sell their wares.
Cemeteries Trace polygon around cemeteries with tag landuse=cemetery and fixme=confirm if cemetery. Cemeteries can be identified by looking for an area covered in small white above ground mausoleums. They are about 2 meters long by about 1 meter wide.
Don’t worry about the road network and the buildings in the rest of the town for now.
