Brief Program Description:
The American Red Cross and Tanzanian Red Cross are beginning long term
disaster risk reduction programming in rural Ushirombo, Tanzania. The Red
Cross hopes to capture GIS data using OSM and needs more detailed basemap
data (roads, land features, rivers) to assist in the project design phase.
The maps produced will be used to create more efficient and grounded
programs to reduce the risk or disease and environmental disaster from
affecting the communities.
