Greetings John – let me assure you this incredible mapping work you have done IS indeed being put to use, in the field, by several organizations who are trying to eliminate Polio from the country of Cameroon. Jorieke was the person who setup the task, and can comment on how this is archived. Mostly though, I wanted to let you know the data created for this village absolutely has meaning. Thank you for your work, and we do have other tasks that need to be pushed across finish line: http://tasks.hotosm.org/?sort_by=priority&direction=asc&search=polio

In addition, we are planning on adding more tasks around this initiative.

Best Regards,

Kevin Bullock

I don't know who the coordinator is but it's mapped.  I've done 247 tiles to a reasonable standard and validated the other fourteen.  If you wait for someone to come along and validate my work you'll probably be waiting a year or more so I suggest this project gets archived.  I sincerely hope that having mapped every building in Meiganga that someone will make use of the individually mapped buildings.

I was looking for a polite descriptive word to use after every and before building but one didn't spring to mind.  I don't know if anyone has any suggestions?
Very nice imagery but a lot of work.

It definitely needs local input for street names etc.
Cheerio John
