Dear All,

Thanks to CNES and Airbus Defence & Space, a Pleiades satellite image of
Kathmendu taken today 2015-04-27 is available online from OSM France
server, as well as an image taken on 2014-11-29 of the same area by the
same satellite, to make before / after comparison easier.

They are in use for task 1008 to map IDP camps, on which 28 mappers are
currently active: http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/1008

Both are available in visible and near-infrared (NIR) band combinations.

They are available as WMS under the root

and as TMS layers (URLs for JOSM):
