Many thanks Pierre and Pete for your helpful suggestions. Much appreciated.
We already started to draw the features using JOSM as much as possible. I
would follow that methods used in Kamrangir char in last Missing Maps
Project. Trying to collect some more GPS/androids. Lets see.

*Would I get support from HOT (as in Kamrangir Char of Missing maps
Project) to upload all the road and major features what will be collected
initially by 1/2 GPS holder to track all possible roads and features ?*

Kind regards
