[HOT Ebola responce] unknown structures

Hi,

I'm pretty sure these ones are buildings under construction.
Due to lack of finances and the high costs for roof materials in Sub-Saharan African countries, it can take a long time until the roofing is done even though the walls are already constructed.

As kartenmalergidi said, those are buildings without roofs.

They are usually tagged with:

building=yes
construction=yes

Re: [HOT Ebola responce] unknown structures

As Nick (Tallguy) pointed out on the HOT mailing list this can also be tagged with:

building=construction

in just one simple tag.

I am not sure which one is the preferred method.

Edit: I missed a mail on the HOT mailing list, it seems the preferred method is building=construction.

I think that the Bing raster layer has changed since you asked that. I see a lot of small trees, or bushes potted around. The quality of the mapping here is more of note, I applied orthogonality to the buildings and tidied up the pathway.
