This job aims at mapping a large area between Juba and Shambe with Bing Imagery to get the pre-crisis context, before maybe having access to post-disaster imagery. This area is where over 100,000 people have fled from the east bank of the Nile to west, especially in Awerial County, to escape the continued fighting around Bor. They are now scattered all along this bank, sheltering in small villages and under trees.
Cette tâche vise à cartographier une large zone entre Juba et Shamblé avec l'imagerie Bing pour avoir un état de la situation avant crise, avant peut-être d'avoir accès à de l'imagerie post-crise. Dans cette zone, plus de 100 000 personnes ont fui la rive Est du Nil pour la rive Ouest, particulièrement dans le comté d'Awerial, afin d'échapper aux conflits autour de Bor. Elles sont désormais dispersées le long de la rive, trouvant abri dans des petits villages et sous les arbres.Created by sev_osm - Updated - Priority: high
MSF has started a nutritional programme in the southern part of Maiduguri, Borno state, Nigeria). More than one million internally displaced persons (IDPs) have been identified in Maiduguri alone, doubling the host population. Where MSF is providing care alone, there are approximately 227 000 IDPs. They are difficult to identify and reach. MSF targets the dense areas (more buildings = more population) as people there are more vulnerable to malnutrition and transmittable diseases. As MSFis new to the area, a more detailed map would allow surveillance teams to advance faster in order to facilitate food distribution.
The Missing Maps project aims to map the most vulnerable places in the world (affected by humanitarian crises: disease epidemics, conflict, natural disasters, poverty, environmental crises). Building on HOT's disaster preparedness projects, the Missing Maps tasks facilitate pre-emptive mapping of priority countries to better facilitate disaster response, medical activities and resource allocation when crises occur.Created by pedrito1414 - Updated - Priority: medium
OSM Tasking Manager is a mapping tool designed and built for the Humanitarian OSM Team collaborative mapping. The purpose of the tool is to divide up a mapping job into smaller tasks that can be completed rapidly. It shows which areas need to be mapped and which areas need the mapping validated.
This approach facilitates the distribution of tasks to the various mappers in a context of emergency. It also permits control of the progress and the homogeneity of the work done (e.g. elements to cover, specific tags to use, etc.).
Just jump over to OpenStreetMap, create an account, and then visit the LearnOSM tutorials on the Tasking Manager and the iD editor. Alternatively check out the MapGive website which also provides information on the Tasking Manager and mapping. Once you have read up on how to map, come back here to help map for people on the ground!
