"We did a blind war for more than 60 years. Now we want a peace built with maps: know our (the) territory to rebuild it."
As we know, one of the problems of land holding in the country is related to the lack of information about the territory, specially in rural areas. Some of these areas are 20 years belated in land cadastre and the information that the state has, it’s information of difficult access for the people. For that reason, we want to invite the OpenStreetMap’s community to help us to make the basis map of the following municipalities: Nechí, Tarazá, Caucasia, Valdivia, El Bagre, Caceres, Zaragosa and Ituango. Municipalities of Antioquia’s Low Cauca and North where armed conflict, illegal mining, planting illicit crops and other problems associated with war have left countless victims and social problems. As part of the XIII anniversaries of OpenStreetMap we invite you to contribute to the peace of Colombia through the maps.
In Colombia, the problem of land holding, land use and rural informality affects 70% of the 4 million rural propertys in hands of peasants, indigenous, afros, finqueros and agroindustriales, who don’t have a title today. Of 10.4 million hectares for agricultural production, 4.2 million are used: the 40%. Of the 10.2 million soils for livestock, 41.7 million are exploited, an overexploitation of 400%. 800,000 peasant families have never acceded to land and more than 3 million people living in a forest reserve area have not been able to access land titles. 75% of 12 million rural people are occupying 5% of 113 million rural hectares. According to the DANE (National Administrative Department of Statistics), 64% of rural households do not have access to land, rural poverty reaches 20% and 4.4 million rural landowners do not have sufficient area to work.
The signing of the peace agreement between the government and the FARC guerrillas opens a space for the execution of the social ordering of property in a participatory manner, because the point one of the agreements specifies that the comprehensive rural reform must contribute to the solution of the historical causes of the conflict such as the land ownership and concentration, the exclusion of the peasantry and the backwardness of rural communities, situation that affects specially to women, and children.

About the image to use
The image we are using belongs to the National Bank of Images (bni.gov.co) was created in 2010. We will use that image as the main, but it can be complemented with the new BING images that improve the coverage of some of these Zones and will allow us to update the map.
Depending on the editor you use to make the map the image will load automatically, we suggest to correct or coteger information to make comparisons with the image of BING and Digital Globe Standar.
Specify precisely the buildings you find. The outline should be for the full size of the building even if it is partially covered by trees in the pictures. Most buildings are rectangular, after drawing the outline, use the 's' key in the iD web editor to 'square' the corners in JOSM use the 'q' key.
Pathways and other features in the image.
We recommend using JOSM to do these tasks, if you are a user who starts contributing to OpenStreetMap we recommend the following turorial: LearnOSM
In general we recommend the documentation found on this site. If you have questions or doubts about these tasks you can write to firstname.lastname@example.org
