Can someone tell them that mapping needs to be done with little care,
students need to be provided proper guidelines, and point them to right

On behalf of Geo for All  http://www.geoforall.org/  ,i request you all to
inform your colleagues and students to contribute in the crisis mapping
action launched by the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team. This will also help
teach the students also the real essence of education and humanity and
"sharing knowledge and expertise" to help each other in times of need.

We thank our colleagues (esp. Maria Brovelli, Marco Minghini and Giovanna
Venuti) and students at GEO Lab in Como (which is one of the GeoForAll
Labs) for also organising a mapping  initiative to support the relief

Details at

The scale of the efforts needed is huge, so more volunteers esp. with FOSS
experience in automatic image classification and feature extraction and
wish to contribute to the mapping response for the Nepal earthquake are
needed . Details at

There are many tasks that need to be accomplished at


Thanks again for all of you for your support and help with this.

Best wishes,
