Improving the map

OpenStreetMap is a editable map, so we can improve it if there's anything missing/wrong (Beginners' guide). This is particularly useful if you have any local knowledge or you can survey things on-the-ground (names of streets etc)

The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team may mount a crisis mapping response. The OSM Tasking Manager has already been set up some jobs:
