Hey mappers,

whenever I tell friends about the HOT projects, I get a lot of sceptic 
responses. Most people don't see the importance of our maps and there 
are even voices saying it is much more something to keep mappers 
occupied than actual help.
If I go deeper into online research on the impact of HOT, I can find 
some opinions here and there, but these are mostly very vague and based 
on few people's opinions.
Is there more than "The maps helped a lot!" or "The maps could help in 
case xxx..." anywhere?
Are there any quantitative data sets or any scientifically executed 

Keep mapping!
