Malaria Elimination Campaign

HOT and DigitalGlobe Team Up to Help Eliminate Malaria

HOT and DigitalGlobe have teamed up to identify and map populated places in an area of interest covering over 500,000 square kilometers in Southern Africa (Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe), Southeast Asia (Cambodia, Laos) and Central America (Guatemala, Honduras) to support the Clinton Health Access Initiative's malaria program. We are mapping using our online Tasking Manager tool, and Mapswipe app.


The tasks for mapping will be continually updated here. If you're new to mapping, you can get started with these quick training videos:

1. Create an OpenStreetMap account

2. Select a task from this list

3. Learn to map buildings and roads (NB: for these projects, at the moment we only need to map buildings)

4. Save and complete your task


Or: download the new MapSwipe app and start swiping and tapping to identify villages and homes in Cambodia and Laos.


Mapbox have kindly created a gif showing our progress on the campaign to date.
