Positive news from SPOT that their pre-disaster imagery of the flood affected
area of Pakistan is now available for use in OSM.
The WMS url is
Before using the imagery, please review the legal agreement at
Note that SPOT has authorized use in JOSM, Merkaartor, and Viking, but not
Potlatch (I wasn't given a reason).
Hopefully this imagery proves useful in the base map. Please distribute this
information to any interested mappers.
We're still working on other imagery sources, especially post-flooding.

Subject: Pre-disaster imagery for Pakistan floods
Hi Nicolas and Mikel,
Here is a WMS to a pre-disaster mosaic of the area :
It is rather old imagery (2008) but it is SPOTMaps specification, meaning that
the horizontal accuracy is usually better than 7 m. (fully compatible with GPS)
Here is the license aggreement that users must accept and that specifically
states that the extracted vectors can be integrated in OSM database. Any other
uses are not permitted.
If you want to use the imagery with a larger group of people, the server might
not be fast enough. Tell me and I will migrate the imagery to another.
Hope this helps. Tell me is this is usable for HOT.
