Dear Ahasan,

Thanks for your replay,

Let see how far we can go in Haiti,

We take our time to be sure to involve the local population and OSM contributors .
And is not so easy : )

For UAVs we train pilots because the material remains expensive .
And there is also a safety issue , so we have permits to fly in France and Haiti .
And it is rather good news that there was a framework for UAV flight authorization
in Bangladesh.

For NDVI we will let you know, but our methodology for the moment is done on a small watershed.
Not like the one we have seen in Bangladesh, so we will need to adapt the tool and methodology according
to the field reality.

All the best, FredM

If you have some contact
