 Dear Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team,

Congratulations on your tile layer, it is both beautiful and highly

Allow me to present myself, Paulo Cabral, Head of the IT Support Division
of the Telecommunications Development Bureau within the ITU. The
International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is the United Nations
specialized agency on Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs).

Currently, we are working on a project in collaboration with the
governments of several countries (Caribbean region, parts of Africa,
Pacific Islands) for raising awareness on Chikungunya and Dengue Viruses.
One section of the mobile application that is part of the project will will
include an interactive map with various markers (hospitals, pharmacies,
specialized treatment centers, etc). For this map, we wish to use your
Humanitarian map layer, with the proper accreditation of course.

One of the most important features of the mobile application, given the
parts of the world this app will be used in, is that it should work fully
offline. This means having the map downloaded onto the phone device during
installation. We are using various techniques for minimizing the total size
of the map, such as providing the map only for the region/country in
question, zooming in jumps of 3 zoom levels.

We would be most grateful if you could provide us with a zip/rar of the
complete map layer such that we can extract the various tiles needed.
Please let me know if this is possible or if there is an existing location
where the entire set can be downloaded without downloading tiles one by one.

With many thanks and bets regards,
