More information about Droughts in the horn of Africa on the HOT blog
Somalia and the whole of the Horn of Africa have been struck by droughts. Currently the only area to do some mapping specifically in response to this crisis, is around the refugee camps in Dadaab (Kenya) However general improvements to the map of Somalia may help aid organisations at this time.
/Roads import of data from MadMappers requires (JOSM expert) volunteers help out with checking and merging in data. If you know how to do this kind of thing, join in! (See /Roads) Some other datasets are described at /VectorAndMapData.
There's also a certain amount of remote mapping to be done using low-res Landsat.
As ever, we can always benefit from people doing on-the-ground mapping. If you are in a position to do this, we'd love to hear from you, and help you get started. Please contact HOT to say hello. You can also read more here: Map Making Overview
