Please trace all buildings and roads.

Map roads and smaller paths for as far as you can follow them. Use Pleiades-2016 Imagery.

Square the corners of all buildings by pressing “S” on your keyboard after labeling the building. You may see huts; make your buildings perfectly round by pressing “O”.

Roads: “The road conditions in Africa do not always correspond to their economic and social role. A road typology should be based on the road importance and not on the surface or the visual appearance of the road”. --Highway Tag Africa, OpenStreetMap Wiki

It can be hard to know the economic and social role of a road, but we can guess that a road is important to trace if it connects other roads, clusters of buildings, or towns and villages. Please use the tags below, taken from the OpenStreetMap Wiki:

Tertiary Road: The roads interconnecting villages and the major streets in towns of some importance.

Residential Road: The roads in residential areas except for major streets that interconnect with various roads (i.e. primary, secondary, tertiary).

Unclassified Road: The roads serving for interconnection of smaller villages and hamlets.

Track: The small roads going outside the residential areas, mainly for agricultural and forestry purposes. In general these roads do not have a connecting function with other roads.
