Almost 1 million Rohingya refugees have fled Myanmar for Southeast Bangladesh in the past few months. For more informations, visit Wikipedia Northern Rakhine State clashes Mapping to support humanitarian actors (as MSF, the Red Cross and Save the Children) has started in September 2017, and it keeps on because the camps are in constant evolution up till today.

In September the most recent imagery available for use on OpenStreetMap was the Mapbox imagery (dated 2016), this was used by the local OpenStreetMap community of Bangladesh to get the map of the general area improved. As from the end of September and the beginning of October new imagery was taken by Digital Globe where we received kindly access to thanks throught the MapGive initiative. In December the IOM was able to fly drones over the camps which were made available through OpenAerialMap.

Mapping attention points in the camps

Mapping the projects in the Rohingya camps in Bangladesh requires quite a bit of attention because :

  • shelter data is being used in the creation of an addressing system and population calculations
  • the road network, or should we say path network, is to reach people. Several humanitarian organisations are using OSMAnd for this. Because the main mode of transport is by foot, the network needs to be mapped as true as possible

Tasks to map

A umap map has been created to have a global overview of what has already been mapped since the last available IOM drone imagery, validated and where. Please contact : System-users-3.svgGiraud colin (on osm, edits, contrib, heatmap) if you have suggestions/comments/questions. A second stage of validation is under process as the mapping was split into two parts (buildings and roads). You will also find the stage of this on this Umap map.
