Dennis (and others interested) — 

Cool, that’s great. There is no public upload mechanism at the moment so this will be a manual process for the time being. Development of an uploader will be included in the oam-server work: https://github.com/hotosm/oam-server. 

In the meantime, we can upload some imagery manually. We should have a process if anyone is interested in prepping their data and we can try to help upload directly to S3. 

Here’s a proposed process for how we can we can move these conversations to Github where we can track. 


    - Open a ticket on the OpenAerialMap repo, tag with `new data` label
    - Detail out what and where you currently have data stored
    - Include a contact email for the imagery 
    - If not public, make a public download available
    - Make sure we can identify acquistion date from the file name
    - We'll then coordinate downloading and putting on HOT’s S3 bucket

If you can open up a ticket, we can start tracking your imagery there and figure out a plan for getting it online.

I'm interested in learning more about this process as well. I've been flying a property near me over the past year to monitor the progress. Right now the imagery is hosted here:


But I'd like to know how to contribute it to OAM. I have some other areas I'd like to contribute as well.

Hey Maning - A public upload process has not been developed yet. We’re doing manual uploads to the HOT S3 bucket. Send me a separate note with where you have the imagery stored now. 

If you have it on Dropbox, send me the download link and I can upload it directly.

Forgive me for not knowing how.
I tried looking at the website and github but, I can't find a way to
upload or share imagery.
We have a few drone/uav imagery taken during Typhoon Ruby/Hagupit and
we want it added to the OAM.
