Please PROJECT HAS BEEN MOVED TO HOT'S TASKING MANAGER - Please Map it there!
Link to new project: Mapinhane, Mozambique - Vilankulo Bed Net Surveillance Program
Peace Corps Mozambique is requesting assistance in creating a basemap of all towns and cities within the district of Vilankulo, Inhambane Province. The finished maps will be used primarily as foundations for mapping mosquito net coverage within each town. Surveys regarding net coverage will be facilitated by local health workers through CommCare's smart phone-driven, paperless survey application. Follow-up distributions of bed nets will use the subsequent survey data and OSM basemap to inform their campaigns.Created by Aristophanes_1 - Updated - Priority: low

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!
