Dear Syed,

I hope everything is going well.
I will try in the following weeks to move on this authorization to fly 
in Bangladesh, any help are welcome.

We are working on a new methodology to use drone on risk reduction 
project ( with OpenStreetMap Haiti, I am also an OSM contributor).
We will test a Near Infra Red NIR camera for land cover /land use work.

We will see how far we can go.

We will use this camera S110 NIR 


So let see if it can be useful during a pilot test end April/May in 

Even if we will do with an NGO, I am still using a Drone for OSM 
activities, as a OSM contributor to improve our worklfow and try to find 
useful use of it.

So don't hesitate to contact me, especially to see with the authorization.

All our imagery are on OSM France server (Jean Guilhem are doing the 
maintenance)  . Available as WMS / TMS link
  2014 images 
2013 images 

Or directly in JOSM if you check supplier = HT / Imagerie Drone 2014 
(Haïti)  or HT / Imagerie drone (Haïti)


We will use Pix4D for the mosaic

And for the extraction of the land cover and other ( NDVI ) we will use 
Orfeo toolbox http://www.orfeo-toolbox.org/otb/

All the best FredM
