Hi everyone,

I want to let you know I just got done updating the Vanuatu specific 
data exports from OSM we provide to the humanitarian organizations 
responding to Vanuatu.

You have more than doubled the amount of map data in OSM about this 
nation in a little less than 24 hours!


Once again the HOT community is rising to a challenge and it is not 
going unnoticed by our current and future partners on the ground.
