[HOT] Mapping IDP camps in Maguindanao, Philippines

I've had a quick look, the houses are often low density and there are lots
of them which makes mapping a cluster awkward, it also means that marking a
tile done is difficult if any buildings are not mapped.  The tracks / roads
can be difficult to pick out which again makes marking the tile done not
easy.  Some clusters of housing don't appear to have any roads leading up
to them but there is a lot of water around so I assume that is the method
of transport.  Anyway I've quickly marked a few large landuse=residential
on a few tiles so I hope that is of some use.  Realistically you need a lot
more mappers from somewhere, much of the imagery is good but you need to
zoom in.  Can you tap the locals in some way?  Especially for the
requirement about picking out places of worships, schools and public
buildings and these need to be done before the tile can be marked done if
it is a requirement.;

What might help is getting one tile mapped as an example of how you'd like
the others mapped.
