Read this first please

This forum is created in response to questions about the way certain items related to the crisis effort should be mapped in OpenStreetMap. Especially for newbie mappers who would like to contribute to the relief efforts.

Things to talk about:
- Setting up the editors specifically for crisis mapping (e.g. loading satellite imagery)
- How to map (previous) tent camps, roadblocks, demolished buildings, flooding areas etc. OSM crisis specific mapping and tagging.
- Tips for recognising certain objects on aerials
- Making exports

Things that (IMHO) should be best discussed elsewhere:
- Organising the relief efforts
- Coordinating the mapping
- Requesting satellite imagery

Other ways of communicating are:
- Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team mailing list

- Haiti mailing list
- Chile mailing list

Sources of information:
- WikiProject Haiti - New Mappers
- WikiProject Haiti - Mapping coordination
- WikiProject Chile - Earthquake

- The International Network of Crisis Mappers

HowTo videos on relief mapping:
- How to map roads
- How to map refugee camps
- How to mark collapsed buildings

Mapping tools: Garmin GPSmap 60CSx, Giant Terrago 2002
