Hi Antje,
What would be great for this Ebola outbreak is to find expatriated people from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone that could add some "color" to our map by adding street names and geolocate various infrastructures.

a while ago I was mapping from a satellite image waiting for a session
at a conference to finish, when the women next to me looked at my
screen, pointed to something and told me that was a round hut, with a
fence out of cactus around it to keep the animals in.

Turns out she had lived in a similar area as a child....

To cut it short:
Maybe we can find volunteers for an activation who don't actually do the
mapping, but who can still help us with the fix-me on the satellite
images because they know typical features of the area?
