  • new (2010-01-31): Precise coords have been entered in shared spreadsheet, apparently from PAHO.

Use source=PAHO.

  • Look up the locations for hospitals that are in the shared spreadsheet:

https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0ArlMTYEgfvwsdERtTkxRUVVqRXdpVzlDSlFnb3F1UHc&hl=en

Update the spreadsheet, and enter the hospitals in OSM if you can (there is a "present in OSM" column in the far right).


new (2010-01-23) : another hospital spreadsheet has been created yesterday (2010-01-22) at

http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0Aoyf-OlHreuhdDBkSWJ2d1FtMkpkTzZrV1B4dDlKREE&hl=en by Mark Prutsalis (Sahana)

It is formatted differently, but valuable information could be found there. Is also contains a quality code, defined by Margie Roswell. (The first shared spreadsheet had been created by Dino Pagliardi)


  • from European Joint Research Center (JRC) :

The attached KMZ was stripped in forwarding. It is there : http://www.mediafire.com/?yymdnmyjyzz


Sources of Hospital Data: (Updated: 2010-01-21 23:13Z)

http://groups.google.com/group/crisismappers/attach/cb6180186debfc74/JRC_Hospitals.kmz?part=4 (Google Earth .kmz file)

requires membership application and approval of membership

http://www.arcgisonline.com/sharing/content/items/750eb59b50aa4351ac39a0d91ca3fb9a/data (ArcMap .lpk layer file)

about the .lpk file format

http://events.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/services/NCMI_HealthFacilities_Haiti/MapServer/WMSServer? (WMS)

need instructions on how to use this as a WMS layer

http://groups.google.com/group/crisismappers/web/JRC_Hospitals-2010-01-21_0510Z.xls (EC JRC Compilation)

requires membership application and approval of membership

A directory of Haiti hospitals, addresses and phones, no maps http://haitimedical.com/union/reference/hospitals.asp


Use amenity=hospital, name=*

Use source:addr=https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0ArlMTYEgfvwsdERtTkxRUVVqRXdpVzlDSlFnb3F1UHc&hl=en if you get the address from there.

When I have no other information than town, I just a point there, in case people looking for a hospital (e.g. from name) are happy to find even approximate coordinates, until more information is available. In this case, when entering the coordinates in the spreadsheet, I put no more than 3 digits after "." in the coordinates, and use a lighter yellow color to highlight. Please edit wiki and correct if this is wrong.

You can use the chat dialog in the shared spreadsheet (more specific) and/or IRC to coordinate with others working on the same task.


When you have time to refine :

Use the tag addr:full=* to store the address

Use the Karlruhe schema if you can parse the address: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/House_numbers/Karlsruhe_Schema

  • You have to use the source= tag to describe the layer you were using, including the satellite, the owner of the imagery and the date of the imagery, e.g. source=Quickbird, DigitalGlobe, 2010/01/15. This is required by the imagery owners and helps us to see if your mapping might be outdated. See WikiProject_Haiti/Imagery_and_data_sources#Imagery
