John we have to be careful not to use infos from imagery providers we dont have the license. Will let others comment more on this if they see any problem.
For Windows, I use the following link to call JOSM with 1 gb memory.
[java path]\javaw.exe -Xmx1024m -jar "[josm path]\josm-latest.jar"

This seemed like a useful helicopter LZresource. http://www.careflite.org/wFirstResponders/landingzone.aspx
So, with the best of intentions I'msure I've been breaking some rules... I've been using Google Earthwith vertical exaggeration cranked up as my 1st tool...looking for relatively level sites. Then I flip around through theirhistorical imagery option... then create a placemark I can use toidentify lat and long.
I'm still a newb re OSM and just gotJOSM up and running yesterday, but my attempt to fix the limitedmemory issue was unsuccessful and it crashed again. I guess Iconsider these urgent enough to brashly offer a few more prospectivesites to anyone with the OSM chops to quickly see if they are helpfuland suitable. If this works, I'll happily do more... if unhelpful Iwill cease and desist – please advise.
5 prospective locations east ofIndrawati River and West of Bhotemanlang
#1026probably tasks 45 and 46 any that withstand closer scrutiny would be tagged "leisure = common"

We did not have clear instructions on this. I then prefered to be conservative. Looking at the official helipads (aeroway=helipad) gives us some clue about what looks to be reasonnable.

Very versatile some of this helicopters!  Based on the information gived from this pictures, maybe "aeroway=helipad" poligons radio could be less than 30 mts (task#1026); so increase probability for more aerial rescue areas?

Hi Michael,

In case it could be useful to imagine landing situations, you can find
photos, and a CNN video, of helicopters landing in my recent Twitter
timeline, like :
