> Hi all,
> Just a reminder that, as we are the second Tuesday of the month, the
> Activation Working Group meeting will occur today at 2PM UTC on IRC on the
> #hot IRC channel on OFTC (Click here <http://irc.openstreetmap.org/> if
> you do not have an IRC client, put an nickname and select the #hot channel
> at the very bottom of the list before logging. If you do not know what IRC
> is, it is basically an open platform for texting online in thematic rooms).
> Notes and log from the previous meeting are here
> <https://hackpad.com/Activation-WG-Meeting-Jan-13-2015-Agenda-6wPNYZZIvrB>.
> What we have in the agenda (of course, anyone can raise any other topic)
> 1 Activations
> * Floods in Malawi and Mozambique
> There is already a job on Lower Shire in Southern Malawi, progressing
> slowly, but another flood extent layer is available
> <http://geonode.wfp.org/layers/geonode:moz_mwi_dfo_floodextent_20150126>
> now, not as precise as the one for Lower Shire but covering the whole
> affected areas. An official activation could be done. We have contacts with
> humanitarian stakeholders in Malawi (from the HOT Project in the field
> during the last Summer), not yet in Mozambique. Helpful is someone help me
> to identify/map affected areas around Zomba, Mulanje, Phalombe and Blantyre
> City.
> * Crisis in Northern Nigeria
> Fred, Nicolas and I contacted humanitarian to set if it would be
> beneficial and not detrimental to map these areas in conflict and it is OK.
> Nicolas will detail that in an email to come
> * CAR (Central African Republic)
> Thanks to the MapGive project, we have two new imagery to cover cities in
> "Bing holes", Rafai <http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/883> and Obo, that
> will complete the map of all the admin 1 and 2 in the country (except a few
> minor towns). See the uMap
> <http://umap.openstreetmap.fr/en/map/central-african-republic-mapping-progress_3868>
> for a clear picture. A blog post should be done shortly.
> * South Sudan
> Juba is progressing well now, and other towns are also mapped through the
> Missing Map Project with whom we will coordinate more. Help for monitoring
> and prepare jobs is welcome
> * Ebola
> Would be good to have an update from Pierre and Andrew. AFAIK there are
> cases close to the western border of Ivory Coast where there is
> unfortunately a "Bing hole".
> 2 Documentation
> * TOR are still to be adopted. Please read them
> <https://hackpad.com/HOT-AWG-Activation-Working-Group-Terms-of-reference-8EFvmXXzU68#:h=Members>
> and give your feedback
> * Through the Grant given by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation due
> to the huge contribution from the hot/osm community during the Ebola
> activation, an Activation documentation and training project is being
> planned
> Talk to you in a couple of hours.
> Sincerely,
> Severin
