Hi Kevin,

Thanks for this, it’s fantastic. The existing Bing and Mapbox imagery in the area is pretty high-quality but it’s never bad to have additional options. I’ll add this to the tasks we’ve opened so far.

Quick question: do you have a bounding box for the overall extent of the imagery? I’m running off a poor connection here so it’s a little inconvenient to eyeball it myself.

> Dear HOT, a few months ago, we launched a Maps API to simplify access to our imagery (in partnership with Mapbox). In response to Hurricane Patricia, we are opening access to pre-event Mexico imagery. We have built 50cm countrywide mosaics for the world, and we are delighted to provide imagery over the impact area of Mexico in hopes of improving OpenStreetMap and aiding in Humanitarian efforts. This data is licensed for OpenStreetMap tracing and usage. Let's rally for Mexico!!
> To use this imagery for tracing within OpenStreetMap, you can load http://www.openstreetmap.org/edit#map=15/20.6075/-105.2316 and then add the digitalglobe.vivid-latam-caribbean map ID as a custom background. (or add to an existing HOT task)
