Dear Frederic,
Think you already have got my reply of your earlier mail ccd with viven and
As I told in earlier mail that since 2014 jan there is restriction on
flying drone without permission. One of my Japanese researches group (cc)
have done almost same study as you in Jamalpur district in 2013. It was an
ADB funded Govt (Bangladesh Water Development Board) project. I think you
could get the permission through BWDB or DDM.

I have read your methodology used in Haiti and like the PGIS approach, it
can give an accurate data set. Wondered to see that you are using NIR
camera and NDVI data also what was not used in Haiti. Waiting to see its
use. It will be an interesting study for me. Some tools are not familiar to
me like Orfeo-toolbox and Pix4D.

See you in April.

Best regards
