Hi Pete,
For the coverage of South Kivu, if you compare with the work already done for the Kivu Activation Dec 2012, and later to fight cholera, you will see some duplications.  All the eastern part along the lakes was covered. For example, TM http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/1078 http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/793 were largely covered if not all. The same around Uvira and Kalemie.

Hi all, I have some stuff to share and a request for some feedback.
Missing Maps has taken on the mapping of the province of South Kivu in DRCongo. This will be our first attempt at such a large AOI.
As part of many things we need to do to achieve this, we have been working on some intelligent tasking processes, which are being documented on the wiki [1]. 
Leading on all this are the DisasterMappers from Heidelberg University and they have developed the microtasking process we used to analyse satellite coverage of the area and have made a similar crowdsourcing task for identifying where roads and settlements are (to save mappers spending hours scrolling through jungle). 
The imagery analysis was very successful, but the second task is trickier and it is important we get it as effective as possible before promoting it widely. I wondered whether some of you would have time to test the tool and feed back, so we can optimise it.
It's all linked from the wiki page anyway, but the tool is here [2] and the feedback document is here [3].
If you have any questions or comments about any of this, including the wider Map South Kivu project, I'd love to hear them.
