Dear all,

Terre des Hommes has conducted a DRR (disaster risk reduction) mission in
Haiti with OSM Haiti (they have seen the Drone + mapping party

<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujTiYoi33_g&feature=youtu.be %20> and
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oou32o-jR0M
<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oou32o-jR0M %20> )

And now Tdh Bangladesh would like to deploy the OSM Haiti methodology and
Drone in Bangladesh for their mitigation project in this area of interest
http://umap.openstreetmap.fr/en/map/tdh-bangladesh-drr_24362#10/25.6811/89.8242

What do you think?  The idea is to have the best open database to improve
hydrological modelling  (we discussed  the methodology in this events
http://eguworkshop.deltares.nl/index.php/agenda/index

Including local knowledge about the risk, a good elevation model (height of
the building, an up to date land cover, road, etc....).

For sure we will need to obtain permission from the flight regulation
authority,

, Any idea, possible not possible in your country.


All the best FredM OSM contributor
