I am forwarding your mail to the OpenStreetMap-Haiti mailing list
where someone may be interested and decide to import these schools in
the OSM map of Haiti
(Actually, I am interested, for one.)
I appreciated very much watching the first two videos.
Would you have accompanying information that would add value to the GPS
data ? Like for instance
- school names (the GPS file only contains info like "SCHOOL TAG 001"
(to "SCHOOL TAG 035")),
- or links with the videos (like time codes corresponding to GPS locations),
- or anything else that you would like to make publicly available...
Or maybe, you or Luke will find it more convenient to add this info once
the schools' locations are on the map ? (With OpenStreetMap tools, they
are designed to be easy to use for everybody, including non-specialists).
Anyway, let's get going and see where this goes.

I'm forwarding an email from Luke Renner of Fireside International with
GPS data for over 30 schools that he's personally visited and assessed
in Port-au-Prince. I'm not a GIS person... I was directed to this
listserv by folks at Crisis Commons because I was trying to find someone
who could use Luke's data. Would you guys be able to use this data?
I'd appreciate a ping back so I know whether I've found the right place

Thanks to Amy for connecting us to the wonderful work that all of you
are doing. I have attached a .gpx file containing the GPS coordinates
for 35 schools. As we continue working, I will be collecting more to share.
Please feel free to let me know if there are things that you need that I
can also be getting while I am out running around.
