8 September 2017 magnitude 8.1 earthquake off the southern coast of Mexico.
19 September 2017 magnitude 7.1 earthquake in Central Mexico.

2017 Mexico Earthquakes Response is an activation of the OSM community across Latin America and the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) to provide map data to assist the response to, and recovery from, these earthquakes that devastated Mexico in September 2017. This is still an ongoing disaster response and recovery project.

On Friday 8 September 2017 at 9:49 PM, an powerful earthquake (magnitude 8.1), the strongest in a century, struck southern Mexico (Chiapas and Oaxaca states), 60 miles from Mapastepec, Chiapas. At least 58 people have died, 5,000 homes completely destroyed, and many more damaged and vulnerable. Reports from the affected cities say residents spent the morning using basic tools and their bare hands to dig through the wreckage of collapsed buildings and pull the injured, and the dead, from the rubble.

Then on Tuesday 19 September 2017, after two weeks of aftershocks, another powerful earthquake (magnitude 7.1) jolted central Mexico (Puebla state and Mexico City), cracking building facades and scattering rubble on streets in the capital on the anniversary of a devastating 1985 quake. Its epicenter was near the Puebla state town of Raboso, about 76 miles southeast of Mexico City. Follow the situation report for M7.1 Pueblo Earthquake from Humanity Road!

On Tuesday 23 September 2017, another powerful earthquake (magnitude 6.2) struck again southern Mexico (Oaxaca state). Its epicenter was between the town of Matias Romero and the city of Juchitan both already affected by the first major quake, and affected other cities notably Tonalá.

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:

  • FieldPaperspaper 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 earthquakes in Mexico 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.

For mappers

  • HOT requesting remote mapping assistance for estimated 2 month mapping response (September 8 - 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 Mexico earthquakes.

Available imagery

OSM default imagery sources

For much of the impacted areas of Mexico, Bing was used as the default imagery.

  • 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.
  • DigitalGlobe provides two global imagery sets.
  • ESRI World Imagery is also a global imagery source.

Alternative imagery sources

  • List additional imagery sources here...
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 15th:

  • Oaxaca earthquake: 1400+ mappers, 165,000+ buildings, 17,000+ kilometers of roads.
