[HOT] [OSM-talk] Event in Vienna/AT: Int'l UN Crowdsourced Mapping

I applied to go as well.

The original meeting I believe was focused more on disaster response,
where as this one has a preparedness aspect to it as well.

I'm hoping to share HOT's work and discuss the availability of imagery
before a crisis happens, instead of the current situation where there
usually needs to be an event before imagery is released.
