> Good day to all,
I assume that the presentations will be made available by CartONG. To
see UAV imagery of Rivière Grise shot by COSMHA and Aurélien, you can go to:
An index of imagery available via predefined suppliers in JOSM is here:
and also includes in particular, as another example hosted by OSM-FR,

This thread is an opportunity to thank CartONG very much for having
organized so well this very interesting conference, where it was a great
pleasure to meet so many persons of value, as Chambéry mayor underlined
himself in his opening talk, and to see a confirmation of the role that
OSM will play in the ecosystem of humanitarian actors.
Let's keep going, and try to do our best to live up to this responsibility.
