Basic Information for Contributing RIGHT NOW 
Working on OpenStreetMap Tasks 

General Info on the OSM Humanitarian Mapping effort : http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/2015_Nepal_earthquake 

If you want to contribute IMMEDIATELY to ongoing Humanitarian Mapping efforts for Nepal through Humanitarian OpenStreetMap.org, please do the following: 

First go through the 30 minute training on http://mapgive.state.gov to learn the basics of humanitarian mapping using OpenStreetMap.org 

Then go to the HOTOSM Task Manager at http://tasks.hotosm.org/ and select a job that you feel comfortable contributing to. Read the directions carefully for the job, then select one of the squares next to one that is marked as complete. This will allow you to pan to the completed square so you can see how others are digitizing the features and mimic their work. 

It doesn't matter how long you work, or how many features you digitize. There are currently hundreds of people mapping on HOTOSM for the Nepal Earthquake.Every edit counts. Additional Tutorials and HOTOSM Resources

It says, "Scale: 1 mile = 1 mile." 
I spent last summer folding it."

I am a retired professional with above average computer skills. I have 
registered with Open Street and HOT. I am ready to help but I am not 
clear on how to receive an assignment. In the meantime, I will try and 
get acclimated with the map making program. Please advise.
