Following the landing of this cyclone, as severe as the Haiyan typhoon, many deaths were reported, and communications were cut. As International organizations field teams arrive to support, they ask us to complete the basemap to assure a better planning of the response. The extent of the zone to cover from the north to the south is 650 km long. The post-assessment evaluations that are presently made need good pre-disaster informations to compare.
In this context, the basemap will be useful for a rapid response.
This task is to trace residential areas, schools, places of worship, highways, waterways, airport, airstrip, common areas and all buildings

- #hotosm-vanuatu-964 When saving your work, please leave the default comment but add what you actually mapped, for example "added buildings and a residential road".
Combination of Bing and MapBox will be necessary, some imagery are covered with clouds If clouds, Comment in the Task Manager : No high-res imagery available Source=Bing; MapBox
Tracing builldings, the best we can, would greatly help the partners that do post-disaster assessments or need to plan field displacement, organize help.
This task is to trace all buildings
Note that MapBox imagery is of lower resolution. To avoid loosing focus at lower zoom, this TMS url link for JOSM uses a hack, an instruction with a lower zoom.
The building outbounds will be imprecise zooming-in, making it more difficult to trace the building. Do your best . What is important is to record all the builldings.
