Task to map individual mobile homes in Carlsbad Lakeshore Garden trailer park for a previous SD/IC Red Cross Home Fire Preparedness Campaign and installation of smoke alarms.

In this task we cover the following mobile home parks:

  • Hacienda Mobile Estates
  • Lynnwood South Mobile Estates
  • Granada Mobile Estates
  • Palms Mobile Estates
  • Palace Garden Mobile Home Park

Other surrounding park can also be mapped. See this map for more details.

When saving your work, please leave the default comment but add what you actually mapped, for example "added buildings and a residential road".

Mapping Buildings

  • Please map mobile homes and buildings within the trailer park areas. Surrounding residential areas can also be mapped, but they are not priority for now.
  • Please accurately outline all the buildings you can find. The outline should be for the full size of the building including awnings, additions, and overhangs.
  • For mobile home search "static mobile home" in the tag list. For any other building outside trailer park areas, use the generic "building" tag.
  • After drawing the outline, use the 's' key in the web editor to "square" the corners.
  • If a unit number is available from the park map printouts, please add addr:unit=* with the actual unit number ("all tags" section, then click on the + button).
  • Many buildings are very close, but do not actually touch each other, try to map them close to each other without letting them connect or share nodes with each other, roads or residential area outlines.

General Mapping Notes

  • Most roads are already mapped. If you see roads or paths that need improvement please make additions and improvements as needed. Please map or adjust roads within trailer parks.
  • Be as precise as possible - This takes a little bit of practice, but following a road closely or the outline of a building carefully really makes a difference in the quality of map data produced. Quality is more important than quantity when it comes to mapping. Zooming in close helps.
  • Sometimes you will find a task square that looks totally mapped or has nothing in it to map. Just double check that it is complete, map anything that was missed, straighten up anything that needs it and then mark it "Done".
  • Invalidated task squares - You might get a notice that a task square was "invalidated" that almost always just means someone found a few more things to map and they did not have time to map them in. No worries, it is part of the process and happens all the time.
  • If you have to stop mapping before you have mapped everything use the "Unlock" link instead of "Done"
  • Ask questions - if you have questions, please ask, the front page of this HOT Tasking Manager website offers a few ways to ask or if you are at a mapping event, raise your hand and ask.
  • You are making a real difference mapping - Every contribution matters in a real, tangible way. Mapping in not easy but know that your mapping is used by humanitarian organizations every single day.
