We are still in Pre-activation for RDC-Congo, but situation is very instable and may evolve rapidly. There are refugees in many areas around Lac Kivu and humanitarian NGOs are planning to help these people.

I am in contact with a GIS specialist in Congo and we are planning more mapping actions.

As Harry stated before,  Mapping DRC is a priority right now.  Imagery available is like a patchwork. I started to prepare a few Tasks for Lac Kivu area were Bing Imagery is available.  New imagery will be necessary for areas not covered with Bing imagery. Sake is also a priority but we have no imagery presently.

Thanks for those who contributed for the Goma area. This task is now completed.  Humanitarian NGOs in the area are very pleased and asked us to pursue our efforts.

I invite HOT contributors to continue mapping around the lake with the task 108 and other Lac Kivu tasks that should be added in the next few hours.
