	before any import takes place you have to make sure that the import
meets the import guidelines:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Guidelines [1] 

	There were several imports in the last weeks in Nepal which infringed
copyrights, were of poor quality, etc. Those imports had to be removed
by the Data Working Group. 

	Regards, Arch

	    Dear All,   Anyone interested in contributing to the glacial lake
database on OpenStreetMap would do well to update the information
available on the region's glacial lakes via ICIMOD.   Follow this link
http://apps.geoportal.icimod.org/glacierlakes/index.html [2], and you
will find a ready-made inventory of the Hindu-Kush Himalayas. It has a
vast repository of information, including the areas, altitude, length
and classifications.   The process may already be in place, to
transfer this info onto OSM, so I'm sorry if this treads on toes,
however, this is a great resource, and I'd encourage anyone who's been
familiarising themselves with OSM for the past few weeks to try to get
this information from one ICIMOD database into the more easily
accessible OSM.   Also, the top 21 most dangerous lakes can be found
here (http://geoportal.icimod.org/storymaps/nepalglakes/ [3]), with
Tsho Rolpa, as mentioned previously, making top of the list.   Check
it out! You may find lots of the lakes have already been mapped, but
any information you can add will always be of benefit!   Thanks,    
           Sam Inglis MSc    [4] [5] [6] [7] [8]

 Hi Sam,   I think honestly you’re better placed to tell us how you
can help than the other way around. Most of us aren’t glacial lake
experts :-)   My first thought is that you can trace lakes in the
affected areas into OSM. The second would be to help us understand
what, if any, risks can result from lakes being dammed by landslides.
Are there risks associated with eventual bursts? Do we need to create
data in OSM and then try to model these risks in GIS software
packages?   You tell us!   Cheers, Robert

background is in glacial lake detection, identification and mapping,
and was the first person to identify all glacial lakes in the North
Patagonian Icefield, Chile. I am familiar with Himalayan mountain
ranges, and studied large swathes of the Indo-Tibetan catchment of the
Sutlej River, which runs from near Mt Kailash, transects Himachal
Pradesh, and terminates in Pakistani territory.   I have previously
not engaged much in communal, open-source, reactive disaster mapping,
but have been adding to the OSM database in Nepal sporadically over
the past two weeks, when time has permitted.    Yesterday, I saw that
NASA had posted an article [12] on the formation of landslide-dammed
lakes along Nepal's rivers, near Gorkha, and was wondering how I can
best contribute to enhancing the understanding of the features? How
can I help with such hazard detection & analysis?   Thanks, and I look
forward to hearing back from you and the team!   Keep up the great
           Sam Inglis MSc    [13] [14] [15] [16] [17]
