Hi,

Spot has extended its aerial imagery coverage over Cote d'Ivoire for
use in OSM. A large part at the Liberian border is now available.
You can view the new images boundary :
http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/118933983
Full extent is here : http://www.openstreetmap.org/?relation=1637990

Many new roads can now be added. Unfortunately, images are too bright
over big cities (like Guiglo) so the streets are hardly visible. But a
lot of work is remaining outside the cities !

The WMS address has not changed :
http://ws.spotimage.com/spotlive/wms/594c4e05-0160-41b8-908e-8331305dcefc?
and attribution is still "Cnes / Spot Image"
Details are available here at the third and last row of the table :
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/En:WikiProject_Ivory_Coast/Imagery#SpotImage_imagery

Displaced persons are still numerous in this area. For those
interested, you can read the latest report of OCHA here :

A big thanks to all those involved, tracing over this imagery, and to SPOT.
