[HOT] Field work this week - need help with validation on #1409

I'll be glad to help a bit on this project. I just opened http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/1409#task/82 to validate it and almost all buildings are out of square. I know we should not invalidate tiles with a few items to correct but that one needs a major revamping. I'll poke around to see if I can find some that I can validate within the 1/2 hr to 1 hr time I have available. Not sure what to do with #82 since you asked us not to invalidate it so I'll leave it for now.

Hi all,

Drishtie from the American Red Cross contacted me today.

They are starting field work in Colombia this week and have a Tasking Manager mapping project that needs to be validated and fixed up a bit asap.


Please only use the imagery that is provided, not Bing or Mapbox.

The imagery is a bit of a challenge and the area is somewhat crowded, but not too bad.

Please do not mark task squares "invalid" just fix them up, we are up against a deadline so we just need it fixed up and then validated, it probably won't get done if you mark it invalid.

The couple that I looked at looked pretty good considering the imagery. 
I just tightened up a few buildings and added in a couple that were missing.

You have to "squint" a bit to "see" the buildings, but it is doable.

Any help would be most appreciated.
