The goal of this HOT task is to map the walls and buildngs of the city of Mopti in Mali.
This job was originally created in order to boost map details in Mopti ahead of a visit there by some representatives of UN OCHA (The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs) in early March. They were presenting to their colleagues there on the status of their work in Mali, as well as the coordination with the OSM HOT Team.
UN OCHA workers were aiming to use for walking papers and as a 'pilot project' to demonstrate our capabilities to other UN OCHA team members. The building details serve as landmarks for a walking papers atlas, used to record the locations of schools and other facilities of interest to humanitarian groups.

- #hotosm-task-201 When saving your work, please leave the default comment but add what you actually mapped, for example "added buildings and a residential road".
Trace all the buildings in your tile and fill in any missing streets from the previous HOT task that covered this area last April which focused on basic infrastructure. The main part of the city in the northwest is the priority area.
Also trace anything that would serve as a landmark, such as mosques, water towers, walls, or towers.
Use the 'building tools' josm plugin, or orthogonalize the buildings you trace with the 'Q' key in JOSM or the 'make square' function in potlatch.
