Good day everyone,
As you may have recently learned, most of our Disaster Mapping responses are much more a marathon than sprint. It often takes several days to pinpoint where the needs are greatest, but I must say that we response efforts.
As both the Hurricane Patricia and Easter Afghanistan Earthquake Activations continue, please allow me to give just a quick update here as it did not seem sufficient for a  whole blog post with pictures, etc. incident.
The recent situation in Afghanistan is that we are solely focused on providing a really good road network for the (roughly) southern half of Project #1264; in other words our near term goal is to get this task 60% complete before we re-evaluate priorities. A few stats on the project: 245 contributors have created nearly 9000 road segments
The situation in Mexico is that project #1257 is nearly 100% complete and validated! Overall the Hurricane Patricia Activation has had (at the time of this email) 463 contributors making nearly 100,000 edits 988K when I looked) including creating  nearly 80,000 buildings.
It’s such an honor and pleasure to be part of this community!
