HOT has been requested by OpenStreetMap Mali and the Mali Red Cross to map areas in Mali susceptible to, or identified as impacted, by the COVID-19 outbreak. Please join our global effort to help control this disease by mapping on this project.
Globally HOT is committed to fighting COVID-19 by providing 3 critical services:
Helping government agencies and responders with basic data needs: we’re providing this through the UN’s Humanitarian Data Exchange, among other ways.
Helping to Identify populations living in places most at risk: prioritizing our existing queue of mapping projects to get volunteers immediately mapping areas with high proportions of COVID-19 cases, or of greater vulnerability.
Creating new mapping projects in highest risk places; which is what this project does. Every feature you map will help in this objective!
The goal of this project is to digitize the buildings using MAXAR Premium Imagery.
Spent 1 hour mapping buildings and roads.
