Hi Tom,
Don't take lack of a reply as disinterest. I'm sure subscribers to this
list are happy to hear of your interest in HOT, and that you've
incorporated MapGive into your curriculum. But discussion on this list is
typically focused on HOT activations, management of HOT resources, imagery
access, etc. If you have a specific question about HOT, this is the place
to ask.

However, since your questions see to be more focused around using
OpenStreetMap in education, I'll direct you to the TeachOSM mailing
list[1]. There you'll find a small, but growing group dedicated to issues
related specifically to using OpenStreetMap in education. I'd encourage you
to join the TeachOSM list and post your questions there. Hope this helps,

There are two types of people in the world. Those that can extrapolate from
incomplete data.
