MSF said yesterday that the time is counted to contro this Ebola epidemy who is spreading in various areas. The CartONG GIS officer that makes the link with MSF has indicated that the operational priority for now is to focus on tracing roads and identify villages names. 

We received new imagery from the MapGive project of the HIU Unit of the US State Dept that covers the area from Kenema to north of Koidu. Andrew created a new Task Manager job to cover this area.  In this job, instructions are to trace only roads and residential areas outbounds. A second job will later take care of tracing buildings.

It is important for HOT to have the capacity to adapt to the humanitarian needs and respond rapidly. Please join in to trace. 

The Task manager is thought to facilitate collaboration, this even if you only have one hour to share. If you do not have time to complete the task, just unlock it with a note saying this task is to be completed. Then others will complete.

Thanks to all.
