>>Information Systems in general and Humanitarian OpenStreetMap
>>Team in particular.
>>We would be interested in conducting a survey among all
>>Humanitarian OpenStreetMap participants, about their experiences

>>One of the main aspects we want to examine is how the
>>respondents are related to the areas they map for Humanitarian
>>OpenStreetMap and to determine their socio-demographic
>>This survey is supposed to be the centerpiece of our research
>>project so we would be very thankful for your cooperation.
>>We chose your mail adress from the HOT mailing list to help us
>>optimize our work with a pretest, if you have some time to spare.
>>If you click the link below and answer the questions in the survey
>>and maybe give some feedback at the end of it, we will be able to
>>find possible errors in our survey design. As mentioned before, this
>>is a pretest, so if you like you can still participate in the final
>>survey we will hopefully send out in a couple of weeks so we can
>>work with the interesting answers and insights you might give to us.
>>Here you will find the link to our anonymous survey
>>For reference about our research project we
