[HOT] Mapping request from MSF

Should this change also be noted in the changelog when uploading in JOSM (when this application is used for mapping)? And also in the comments section in the Tasking Manager when submitting as “done”? 

 

My concern is a validator may not know which imagery the mapper used.

Just to update, we have changed the imagery instructions slightly again as often MapBox is as good if not better than Bing.

 

Instructions now read:

 

Please switch between both Bing and MapBox imagery for this project. They are both available and checking both will improve accuracy. You can switch between the two last used images in iD easily by using CTRL-B.

 

If someone can update the French...! Thanks.

Good advice, Rafael. I have updated the instructions tab. If anyone can make the changes in French it would help (or just send me the text and I'll edit the project).

 

Thanks for your contributions so far!

 

Cheers,

 

Pete

Hi, Pete:

I've done 2 tasks [1], and I've seen that Mapbox, apart from being well aligned with Bing, clarifies lots of buildings that are difficult or very difficult to spot with dark Bing imagery. So I think adding Mapbox would be a good idea.

I would also ask mapper to align some of the highways, as otherwise they intersect with buildings.

Cheers,

Rafael.

Hi all,

Quick request... MSF urgently needs data for teams in Kinshasa battling
the yellow fever outbreak.

http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/2041 (just buildings on this one)

This is the first of (probably) a few areas needing mapping. More
details in the tasking manager project description. Vaccination set to
start early - mid August. Team has asked if we can have the mapping done
by the 8th August.

If you have any questions, please let me know. If you have some time,
your contribution would be much appreciated, either mapping or
validating....

Cheers,

Pete
