Hi all,

Thanks a lot for your reactions!
About the Tasking Managers and imagery. We are still discussing this more
in detail, but thanks a lot for your input!
The main focus will normally lie on the digitalization of the FieldPapers
with local data of Lubumbashi.

For the twitter hastag good idea Nicolas! I'm far from an experienced
twitter user, but what you propose seems me a little bit long as hashtag.
 Further I also remind me that there was used a hashtag for the mapathon in
Berlin, not? Maybe we can use the same one?

All the best,
