The ballpark figure that I use is that HOT (the organization) + missing
maps activity is about 5-15% of total activity. Humanitarian mapping is
a bit broader, but probably wouldn't change the numbers much.
Exact figures depend on what you define activity as, but 5-15% is valid for
- Active mappers who have at least 1 HOT changeset
- Total mappers who have at least 1 HOT changeset
- Number of changesets
- New signups who have a HOT changeset
Unless a big focus of your presentation is on activity and how to
measure it, I'd just stick with 10% as being approximately right.
