Hi,

Airbus D&S has offered two Spot-6 images, with 1.5 m resolution,
covering the areas around Kenema and Kailahun. They are available in
"natural colors", and also with a near-infrared band (NIR), in these TMS
layers (that also include the Spot-6 images that were previously offered):

tms[22]:http://imagery.openstreetmap.fr/tms/1.0.0/ebola_spot6/{zoom}/{x}/{y}
tms[22]:http://imagery.openstreetmap.fr/tms/1.0.0/ebola_spot6_nir/{zoom}/{x}/{y}

These are URLs for JOSM, and you must accept the Astrium / OSM license
(http://tasks.hotosm.org/license/6) before accessing them.
Use source=Spot-6, Airbus


They can be used (along with other imagery sources) for the current
priority need to locate villages and hamlets, and access roads and
tracks, in the District of Kenema.

And also to complete these elements (settlements and access roads) in
the area between Kailahun and Koindu where Bing is obscured by clouds.


0.5 m resolution images should be available soon to map the buildings in
the towns of Daru and Kenema, which have less high priority.

Best wishes,

Jean-Guilhem
