Hi Mhairi and all,

it absolutely makes sense to me to collect post-earthquake pictures as 
well as pre-earthquake ones as they will be helpful for the same 
reasons. There seems to be a request for this additional kind of 
information, so it would be great to bundle them all at one place. I 
think there´s two possible options to do that

1. Public access: photos we own the copyright (or have the allowance 
from the owner) and those that are public domain. We can use Creative 
Commons, which make it easy to identify the different type of licences. 

2.Restricted access/collaboration by invitation: photos we find anywhere 
on the web regardless to copyright, people can upload by themselves, no 
surveillance needed.

I am a graphic designer, for this reason I am very aware of the 
copyright issue, it shouldn´t be underestimated.

I favor the first option, but leave it to the community to decide. I am 
very willing to take over the organisation and management of our photo 
material including tagging, georeferencing and attributions. I am very 
familiar with this kind of work.
