The Swedish NGO Vattentankar in Kenya (Water tanks in Kenya) builds houses with water tanks for the most vulnerable and poor families in the Mutomo (Kitui, Kenya). The area is a blank spot on most maps which makes planning and assessing needs difficult.

I, the founder of this mapping project, have told them about OSM and that we might be able to help them. Please join this project if you would like to help out!

About Vattentankar i Kenya and the Mutomo area

Access to water is a major problem in the area around Mutomo. There are no natural lakes or rivers and drilled wells give salty water that requires desalination. "Vattentankar in Kenya". Rain water is caught in either tanks, or with rock catchments. Read more about the NGO and the local situation".

Please map:

  • Roads (prioritize larger ones connecting villages first).

  • Tag roads according to the Highway Tag Africa wiki page. Most roads connecting villages should either be unclassified or tertiary with only occasional small clusters of isolated houses being connected to the road network by a path (only use path if it would be too small to even drive a 4x4 vehicle on).

  • All things water.

Good resources for remote mapping:

Bing, Mapbox and Digital Globe have good imagery of most of the area.

This is my first collaborative OSM project so if you have good ideas, please let me know!!

  • landuse=residential around clusters of houses.

  • Buildings. But prioritize to mark the area as landuse=residential.
