Kathmandu Living Labs (KLL) in partnership with the Nepalgunj Sub-metropolitan City Office is working towards developing the geospatial infrastructure of the city. This task is a critical part of Nepalgunj Sub-Metropolitan City's goal to foster open local government in the Sub-Metropolitan. Map data created through this task will be used as background data, on top of which the City's annual plans and budgetary information will be laid. KLL is currently working on the ground with Nepalgunj Sub-Metropolitan City government to realize this goal.

You will be using satellite imagery to map roads, buildings, waterways . For guideline on remote mapping please refer to this wiki https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nepal_remote_mapping_guide
For list of common tags used in Nepal please refer to this wiki https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nepal/Common_tags
For classification and tagging of roads please refer to this wiki https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nepal/Roads
For an understanding of what a city wide mapping project will eventually include please refer to this wiki https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Kathmandu_Living_Labs/2CPokhara
To be efficient with mapping buildings we suggest you use JOSM with building plugin installed. Please note that most buildings in Nepal are rectangular in shape and what seems like circular huts could be haystack.
