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 resources.

On behalf of Geo for All   <http://www.geoforall.org/> 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 efforts.

Details at http://www.polo-como.polimi.it/news/dettaglio-della-news/article/165/helping-nepal-with-a-mapping-action-at-como-campus-967/

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 http://opensourcegeospatial.icaci.org/2015/04/mapping-response-contributions-for-nepal/

There are many tasks that need to be accomplished at http://tasks.hotosm.org/


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

Best wishes,
