Map Data for Tacloban City in Different Zoom Levels Taken From Open-StreetMap

Caption: The degree of blockage of the city's road network and the status of its buildings (which, prior to cleaning efforts, may be used to approximate the degree of blockage of road segments due to debris from buildings beside them) were extracted from OpenStreetMap's data using the Overpass Turbo online data mining tool. The red shapes represent damaged or collapsed buildings as mapped by OpenStreetMap's Humanitarian team.
