Hi Saul, welcome to HOT
As you know, our mission is all about mapping for Humanitarian responses
and we have a large of activities where you can contribute.
The best place to start is at http://LearnOsm.org to get you up to speed
with OpenStreetMap, Tagging schemes, editors, etc
We work primarily through a tasking manager http://tasks,hotosm..org. This
allows you to get involved in a mapping activity of your choice. Simply
put, the Task manager provides you the ability to choose a task and a small
square of the task to map, and also supplies you with details on the
Imagery, Licensing, Attributions needed and exactly what to map, often via
a specific Wiki Page dedicated to the activity.
You are welcome to ask specific questions about a Task on this list.
If you are an IRC User, (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/IRC) there is a
permanently open channel where a lot of experienced mappers lurk and they
are always willing to answer questions. The actual channel is at
We all started mapping the same way as you are, so we all understand that
every question is a good one, so feel free to ask.
"If we change the world, let it bear the mark of our intelligence"
See me on Open StreetMap <https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/Mark_Cupitt>
