The Municipality of Carigara is located in Leyte province of the Philippines. Stretching from the coast into the mountains, Carigara is home to a population of 51,345 (2015 Census). Typhoon Haiyan (2013) damaged 6,026 houses, totally destroyed another 5,684 houses, and killed 14 people within the municipality. Carigara was also recently affected by the 6.5 magnitude earthquake in July 2017 which triggered a landslide injuring 26 people in the municipality. As a part of ongoing disaster risk reduction and management (DRRM) efforts in the Municipality of Carigara, this project aims to improve the base geospatial data coverage of Carigara for disaster response, climate adaptation, risk mitigation, and support for other humanitarian initiatives. This project is in partnership with the US Peace Corps Response and the Mortenson Center in Engineering for Developing Communities at the University of Colorado Boulder.

Project Specific Mapping Notes
- Imagery Note Please use Digital Globe imagery.
- Mapping only needs to be completed within municipal boundaries shown. For edge task tiles, entities only needed to be mapped within the municipal boundary.
- Please trace roads and buildings from the satellite images.
- All highways should join up, even if the exact location is not clear.
- General remote mapping tutorials: Beginner Learn-To-Map Videos and LearnOSM
- Use the "Split" link after you click "Start Mapping" to make tiles smaller if needed. Sometimes a task square will have a lot of detailed settlement mapping.
- Please see Philippines Mapping Conventions prior to starting to familiarize yourself with Philippines mapping and tagging standards.
- Please accurately outline all the buildings you can find. The outline should be for the full size of the building even if it is partly covered by trees in the imagery.
- For square or rectangular buildings, after drawing the outline, use the 's' key in the web editor to "square" the corners.
- In the iD web editor, the first time you map a building you will use the "Building" category and then at the top of the list select "Building" again.
Road and Path Mapping
- You will most often use the following "Road Features" and "Path Features" (iD Web Editor):
- Primary Road, Secondary Road, Tertiary Road - Long, major roads that connect larger towns or are inter-neighborhood roads
- Minor/Unclassified - This is for roads that connect small settlements (most commonly used road tag)
- Residential Road - These are roads that are in settlements but only are used for access to houses and buildings.
- Path - This is for small paths that are usually used by people on foot or 2 wheeled vehicles. They may or may not connect settlements or lead to farm fields, tagged highway=path. Only map the major paths that connect to settlements or other roads.
- Unmaintained Track Road - This is for roads that only lead to farm fields or forests, tagged as highway=track. They do not connect settlements or residential areas.
