The northern region of Mali needs your attention. A vast region in the 
upper Niger delta and along the Niger river is affected by seasonal 
floods covering a vast territory. Many isolated hamlets are to be found in 
this area. Also, the present political turmoil may cause important 
people displacements.

Some people have already started to map along the Niger river in the last few months. New high resolution imagery recently delivered by Bing offers new possibilities to map, more particularly along the Niger river. We find a large imagery band from Timbuctu down to the Niger border.

Today, I added to the Task manager the job for Gao   : http://tasks.hotosm.org/job/43
I invite people to select some task grids to trace both in Gao city and the nearby islands where we find many isolated hamlets.  To facilitate mapping with JOSM, a Preset file is provided. You can download this file  from the Workflow area of Task Manager job 43.
