[HOT] Ground truth (for task #118)

Hi,

mapping regions abroad having never visited them causes the wish to
have photographs to compare/verify how things from satellite imagery
look in "reality".
For example for this highway seemingly covered with water there are
sure some people (including me) not having seen such a thing in real
live:
http://sautter.com/map/?zoom=18&lat=-3.33604&lon=29.20612&layers=00B0TFTFFFFF

Thus it would be a great help if people (most likely helpers on-site)
could provide photographs from the places to map - if possible with
geotags on them.¹
They could be transmitted either using flickr (or similar services) or
any other ways available (ftp, in an archive at an one-click-hoster...)
To be able to derive data from the photographs it would be good if they
were under public domain/licensed CC-0 or similar.

Best regards
Thomas
