This is a really interesting area re. ethnography and visualisation, and 
directly affects how locals perceive what they are mapping, not to 
mention the ethical perspectives of 'colonial gaze'. Would love to see 
careful discussion on this. Thanks for the idea.

Maybe there’s an opportunity to articulate early what a healthy researcher/community relationship can look like. I’ve some experiences from this and other communities I can share.

Potential topics for discussion could include research ethics, opportunities for documenting HOT's efforts, and the kinds of questions that the HOT community would see benefit from having academic investigation into.
>> There is tremendous scholarly interest in OpenStreetMap these days and HOT is an important reason for that.  I think it could be useful for us as a community to articulate what partnership with academic researchers might look like and what we might hope to gain from this.
>> If you have interest in participating in this panel or just have thoughts that you would like to see covered, please drop me a line here or off-list.  Look forward to seeing everyone at the Summit.
