We have been mapping Jacmel city in the past three days. The city itself
an east up to Catadat, north up to Bassin Caiman, and west up to
Desmarattes is mapped as good as possible. The area is covered by
DigitalGlobe imagery whose quality is, unfortunatelly, not homogeneous.
Jacmel center has been enriched with street names and POIs provided by
Depending on which rural areas you are most interested in GeoEyes Ikonos
satellite provides coverage too, but only more up north.
Have a look at this site: http://projekte.eiops.de/osm-matrix/. Can you
tell us what tiles in this matrix you are most interested in?
