Thanks Harry

With the new imagery coming, there will be many tasks to digitize. With this emergency in summer time, It will greatly help if other groups also organize mapping parties.

Thanks for kicking that off Pierre, and thanks for the blog update. http://hot.openstreetmap.org/updates/2014-07-06_reactivation_of_hot_for_the_ebola_epidemic 
(I made some minor english corrections)

I guess we'll be focussing on those tasks at our little Mapathon event in London tomorrow evening! https://www.facebook.com/events/1502841383265312/

According to the
latest report of WHO on Tuesday July 1, the Ebola outbreak killed 467
people, about 759 cases of hemorrhagic fever identified in the three
affected countries, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia. This is 129
more deaths than the previous record from a week ago, an increase of
more than a third, a sign that the epidemic is distributed after a
lull in April. Both MSF and Red Cross are deploying in new areas in Sierra Leone and need our help to map these areas.

The HIU unit of the US State Dept, MapBox and Airbus & Defense are processing imageries. As these images arrive, more jobs will be created.

With this reactivation for the Ebola Outbreak, we need again your participation. 

The jobs are coordinated from the Task Manager at http://tasks.hotosm.org/#featured/Ebola
