Hi all,
I dont know if I am doing something wrong. I am reading up on the
damage from patricia.
here it says https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Patricia#Mexico
"The small town of Chamela was completely leveled" but looking at this
imagery tms[99]:https://api.mapbox.com/v4/digitalglobe.vivid-latam-caribbean/{zoom}/{x}/{y}.png?access_token=pk.eyJ1IjoiZGlnaXRhbGdsb2JlIiwiYSI6ImNpZzRqYng4OTJ1NWd0emt2b3Q2dWhwNXQifQ.8ohSIF9elaL6Z6Cx69Joxg
in josm I do not see any differences between the bing images and the
original. I do not see any damage like we saw in nepal.
https://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=19.53&mlon=-105.073333&zoom=15#map=15/19.5300/-105.0733
can someone point out the damage recorded so far? what has been the
impact of this storm?
thanks,
mike
