OSM Tasking Manager is a mapping tool designed and built for collaborative mapping. The purpose of the tool is to divide up a mapping job into smaller tasks that can be completed rapidly. It shows which areas need to be mapped and which areas need the mapping validated.
This approach facilitates the distribution of tasks to the various mappers. It also permits control of the progress and the homogeneity of the work done (e.g. elements to cover, specific tags to use, etc.).
OSM Tasking Manager was designed and built for the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team.
