It is the Tanzania government's priority to assess and improve physical access to obstetric care in Kigoma Region. To efficiently capture the road network by which residents use for traveling to obstetric care facilities, we determine to it is crucial to first map out all the residential land-use areas. This sub-set task encompasses the northern area of the region, where the coverage of digital globe satellite imagery is generally more optimal than Bing and Mapbox .Created by yche465 - Updated - Priority: high
It is a priority of Tanzanian government to improve access to obstetric care in the country’s Kigoma Region. In support of this goal, it is the objective of this project to map the road networks that residents use to reach these facilities. We have identified the mapping of residential areas as a crucial first step in what will be ongoing work to increase the coverage and quality of Kigoma Region’s road network, and would like to ask for your help in this endeavor.Created by yche465 - Updated - Priority: high
Malawi has been traditionally vulnerable to natural disasters because of its unique geo-climatic conditions. From 1979 to 2015, natural disasters affected over 22 million people and killed about 2,650 people. The main types of natural hazards include floods, droughts, earthquakes, and landslides. The country also faces human-induced and biological disasters, such as environmental degradation and epidemics respectively. Malawi’s vulnerability is primarily linked to specific geo-climatic factors: (i) the influence of the El Niño and La Niña phenomena on the country’s climate, and the tropical cyclones developing in the Mozambique Channel, resulting in highly erratic rainfall patterns; and (ii) the location of the country along a tectonically active boundary between two major African plates within the great East African Rift System, causing earthquakes and landslides. The intensity and frequency of climate related disasters is likely to increase in light of climate change. Generally there is an unequal distribution of rainfall causing localized dry spells as well as floods. The magnitude, frequency and impact of disasters have been increasing, in light of climate change, population growth and environmental degradation. The number of people affected by these disasters has increased sharply since 1990. Currently approximately 15percent of the rural population lives on the fringes of high flood-risk areas. In order to build resiliency to natural hazards and to inform the current risk reduction activities in Malawi, such as the IFRMP and the PDNA, there is a need to scale up collection of geospatial data in the six districts of Karonga, Salima, Mangochi, Machinga, Blantyre and Balaka in order to inform decision- making and promote data preparednessCreated by GOduori - 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 to control the progress and the homogeinity of the work done (ie. Elements to cover, specific tags to use, etc.).
This version of the Tasking Manager is geared toward classroom instructors, or any other individuals leading a coordinated group in a team-mapping project.
