THIS TASK REPLACES TASK #800 due to potential mapping conflicts with the
number of people mapping

*THIS TASK IS FOR EXPERIENCED MAPPERS*

Typhoon Ruby has slowed slightly and the track has moved to the north of
earlier predictions, giving us a longer window to complete pre-disaster
mapping tasks.

In support of The Philippine Government, Red Cross/Red Crescent, DHN and
other Agencies, we have created our *third* task for this Activation.

We NOW HAVE have new Satellite Imagery for Samar courtesy of MapGive.

Through the MapGive project, the Humanitarian Information Unit (HIU) of the
U.S. Department of State is providing the OpenStreetMap community access to
updated satellite imagery services to help assist with humanitarian mapping.

This task covers an area with HiRes Black and White Imagery

We will be looking to add or improve the following features


   - roads; schools, hospitals, churches, buildings, residential and
   commercial areas and waterfronts, malls, sports complexes.
   - open areas (not fields, just smooth open ground next to towns) as
   leisure=common as these are potential helicopter landing sites.


This is a larger area, if you need to split the tiles you can do so up to
two times.

*We ask all Hotties to help in the response and to map this task as quickly
as possible. We expect to make additional tasks available as the landfall
track predictions improve.*
