Track map of Hurricane Irma of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season. The points show the location of the storm at 6-hour intervals. The colour represents the storm's maximum sustained wind speeds as classified in the Saffir–Simpson scale (see below), and the shape of the data points represent the nature of the storm. This track however does not show the full extent of areas that have been severely impacted, which extends to more than 100 km from the track.

2017 Hurricane Irma and Maria Response is an Activation of the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) to provide map data to assist the response to, and recovery from, these hurricanes which devastated parts of the Caribbean in 2017 starting on 5 September. This is still an active disaster response and recovery project, with emergencies still to manage and a lot of people to assist in their basic needs and longer-term recovery.

Hurricane Irma, one of the strongest storms ever recorded in the Atlantic traveled through the northern British Virgin Islands and towards Florida after passing a string of small eastern Caribbean islands, impacting civilians and infrastructure. The hurricane first severely impacted the islands of Antigua and Barbuda, Anguilla, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Sint Eustatius and Saba, Saint-Barthélemy, the French and Dutch parts of Saint-Martin/Sint Maarten, Anguilla, the British Virgin Islands. It then impacted the eastern and northern coasts of Puerto Rico, northern part of the Dominican Republic and Haiti, the Turks and Caicos Islands, the northeastern part of Cuba, the Bahamas, and Florida.

Then followed Hurricane Maria which started to hit the same areas on 19-20 september and evolved in less than 12 hours from Category 1 to Category 5 when reaching the Lesser Antillas. Devastations by extreme winds, floods, landslides are reported throughout Dominica, the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Follow the situation report for Hurricane Maria from Humanity Road!

About OpenStreetMap

OpenStreetMap offers an online map (and spatial database) which is updated by the minute. Various tools and services allow data extracts for GIS specialists, Routable Garmin GPS data, Smartphone GPS navigation, and other device-compatible downloads. With an internet connection, regular syncing is possible with open access to the community contributed data as it comes in, with OpenStreetMap's bulk data downloads ideal for use offline. In addition, maps can also be printed to paper.

Browse the activation area to get a feel for the data that is currently available. Different map styles including an Humanitarian style can be selected on the right side, and some data may not render (appear) on the map, but could be exported from the underlying database (See export section below).

Paper maps

Poster size Maps and normal sized paper atlases of custom areas can be printed:

  • FieldPapers Paper Maps with grid for field survey or general navigation purposes,

Exporting OpenStreetMap data

Anyone can use OSM data for free under the Open Database Licence (ODbL) as long as OSM contributors are credited. Exports of the OSM data for affected areas of Hurricanes Irma and Maria can be downloaded from the OSM Export Tool, and the Humanitarian Data Exchange (HDX) platform (Twitter@humdata). Datasets are being published through the Export Tool as mapping projects are being completed on the Tasking Manager. Please check back frequently for new datasets listed in the table below.

Offline road navigation with small devices

The exports listed in the table below contain formats for Garmin (.imp) and .mwm which works in the mobile app MAPS.ME

Usage of OSM data for humanitarian missions

For mappers

  • HOT requesting remote mapping assistance for estimated 2 month mapping response (September 5 - Ongoing)

How you can contribute

Learn to map

  • You can contribute to the response via the internet by tracing buildings, roads, waterways, etc. (as requested by project). To react rapidly to support humanitarians deploying, we need a lot of contributors for remote editing. Visit the Missing Maps beginners section to get started.
  • For more information visit LearnOSM.org for modular training on a wide variety of OSM topics from beginner to advanced.

Mapping

  • Please choose from highest priority first. Pre-disaster situations should be simple to complete fast, just validating the essential missing infrastructures. Post-disaster mapping could require much more work and more complex planning of emergencies, but will require newer specific imagery source.
  • Generic instructions on how to use the Task Manager and map roads, buildings and waterways can be found here.
  • For experienced mappers, information on validating the tasks can be found here.

Areas being covered by projects in Tasking Manager can be seen on the uMap for 2017 Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

Available imagery

OSM default imagery sources

For much of the impacted area of Hurricane Irma and Maria, Bing was used as the default imagery. For Puerto Rico it was determined that Esri World Imagery was most consistent across the island.

  • Bing provides a global imagery data source that is the 'default' Imagery available for OSM (default option in most editors).
  • Mapbox provides a global imagery source and has been found to be more recent in areas impacted by Irma and Maria.
  • DigitalGlobe provides two global imagery sets and the Premium imagery has been found to be more recent in certain areas impacted by Irma and Maria.
  • Esri World Imagery is very consistently aligned with GPS traces on Puerto Rico although may be older than other imagery in the area, when no GPS available, align features to Esri.

Alternative imagery sources

How to add/use alternative imagery

In many cases better imagery is available than the default; when possible we set up a remote link directly via the Tasking Manager, so there is nothing to do, the iD editor and (as long as enabled) JOSM will automatically add the imagery.

Additionally, with JOSM, it's relatively easy to add special imagery if the license is appropriate for tracing into OSM. For more details see JOSM Imagery Help

Efforts made

As of October 25th:

  • Hurricane Irma: 2100+ mappers, 540,000+ buildings, 14,000+ kilometers of roads
  • Hurricane Maria: 5300+ mappers, 950,000+ buildings, 30,000+ kilometers of roads
