Hi Frédéric

the bing image is better for mapping, more clear.

But to map this houses are really hard. It seems they are all with walls 
around and a unregular form.

my first houses looks like this: 

> Dear all,
> The ICRC (International Committee of the Red Cross) is looking for
> some support from the HOT community to digitize on top of a satellite
> image they have acquired over the city of Kunduz in Afghanistan.
> The image is 50 cm resolution, comes from the WV2 sensor
> (DigitalGlobe) and was acquired the 12th of October 2012.
> The ICRC will use the image and the OSM data to work on a drinking
> water project.
> The ICRC is very interested in all the buildings, the streets and the landuse.
> A task has been created, with details : http://tasks.hotosm.org/job/199
> Each task is voluntarily small, in order to take the time to map out
> the buildings.
> I am available if you need any other information.
> Best
> Fred
