Hi John,


If there is some particular wording suggestion you have, go ahead and comment directly on the document.  In general, this does increase the role of validation as we are going to build out a training specifically for that role.  I was actually getting around to including you in the building of that training, so in general I think these concerns will be addressed during that process.


Chat more soon,

The only thing I'd suggest is stronger empathise on the role of validation.  Feedback by end users at a recent AID conference in Ottawa was the maps were great but please could we arrange for them to be validated as the quality was variable.

I note we include the words about new mappers but for the maps to be more reliable they need to be validated and not just by another new mapper.

I like the idea that there is some sort of review of older projects with the idea of either turning them into a missing map project or simply archiving them.

Projects that ask for buildings typically don't get completed, could this be taken into account in the activation process?

Hello HOT community,


There has been a tremendous collaboration to create the draft Activation Protocol; a great thank you to everyone who has contributed so far. On behalf of Tyler, Mhairi and myself; we welcome you to make one more review of the content this week before we ‘take-it-offline’ for print-editing (with a huge advanced thank you to Katja for helping us with that).


With that said, please be advised that all the figures/tables/etc. are my sketch-up and should not be considered final/good/etc – just a sketch of what the final product will contain.


The draft document can be found here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1qefHRE3_wUyG3lMSb7NlkSDtPuQeaQXsflkxt3E3xSA or via the HOT Drive.


Thank you,



Russell Deffner
