that is right, the remote mapping is important because it is that way we
produce data such as building, roads, and other data which are important
to produce map.

dont know where to search. Images are not always clear and sometimes
cloudy. A team is presently deploying to inspect, repair the towers and
provide communication services.
> People with local knowledge are particularly useful to name objects,
to complete the map we produce remotely, giving it more significance.

> this is a very good idea. as for the exact position of communications
towers, it is necessary that we have teams on the ground who know the
territory. I know it's risky, but if you are able to do this work, you
provide information that remote mapping can not provide.
