We are mapping buildings, roads and villages via satellite imagery on OpenStreetMap – everyone can help. You need to register on openstreetmap.org, open HOT Tasking Manager and map one of these tasks on your computer.
All the instructions can be found in each task, and here is a helpful video to get you started.
If you are mapping locally in Tanzania, find Maps.me mapping instructions here.
If you would like to be partnered with a remote mapper to help with fieldpapers, please get in touch.
All maps on OSM need to be validated – just so we don’t leave any mistakes. Any more experienced mapper can do it.
If you have done validation before, head straight to one of these tasks on the HOT Tasking manager, and get started!
If you have never done validating before, contact us and we will walk you through it.
DONATE YOUR OLD PHONE!
Have an unused working phone hidden away in your drawer? We can use it!
Send us your old or new unused phones, and we will use them to train more local people in Tanzania to map their own communities.
Don’t let it go to waste! Donate it.
DONATE VIA GLOBAL GIVING
Any donation, big or small, goes a long way in Tanzania. We are using donations to buy phones, train community change agents and run mapping workshop locally in Tanzania.
