Maproulette Instructions (India Health Facilities)

Posted by Neena2309 on 8 November 2019 in English (English).

Background of the Challange:

The challenge is to improve the health care information in India which can be beneficial for the people in need. In order to do so we need to re-position the coordinate with their actual ground truth position (If they are not at the actual position) with the help of local knowledge and add the Additional Tags from the MR Properties to the amenity.

Use Maproulette and Josm in order to add or modify hospital and all other sorts of health facilities records in OSM.

Step 2: Check for the Existing data

If the Hospital/Health Center feature is already mapped in OSM. Add the missing attributes to existing feature from the MR Task Properties.

If not add a new node on the Hospital/Health Center location and add all the Tags from the MR Task Properties.
