Hi everyone,

I just wanted to share my thanks and congratulations to the HOT and 
Missing Maps community for their contributions to Swaziland mapping.

The series of project I had planned got done so much faster than I had 
imagined possible, I have been behind the whole time trying to keep up 
with everyone.

The epidemiologists who reached out us to work on their critical 
priority area have asked that we finish the country. When I was first in 
discussions a month or so ago, they mentioned this and I said I thought 
that was probably too much too ask and that it would not be possible in 
their time frame.

But after the the incredible work HOT and Missing Maps have done on the 
priority section of the country, I think it might actually be possible 
for us to complete the country with building footprints.

I am still not able to keep up with your mapping so this next series of 
projects is coming out a little .... less planned than the first series.

I just wanted to pass on the thanks we have gotten from the people 
working on Malaria elimination in Swaziland. I have not had a chance to 
thank you all properly or let you know how impressive your work has 
been, but it truly has been.
