>>HOT, the WMS hosting & image processing steps we have taken.

for the albanian flooding we had our own hosting on our own server. We did
not have gps devices cause no one could afford to help. We has support of
giscorps. We also had some data from city of shkoder.
For kosovo we used the same server (which is now offline), gps devices where
donated by unhabitat, drlizau, rrota.com and myself. in the beginning we
also hosted the data ourselves. now thanks to mikel we are using the
hypercube for some layers. The images, we got from begging, had no money.
Except Bekim from immap who purchased russian topo maps and donated alot of
data himself. And not to forget logisticsplus www.*logisticsplus*-ks.com,
which donated imagery, data and manpower.

I hope this is what you wanted.
