Brief update about our mapping over Haiti from Bouaké, Côte d'Ivoire + a
few remote people worldwide, complementing the work done by HOT US on its
TM instance.

Pre-disaster mapping over Jérémie is expected to be finished today over the
downtown area so that it is ready for any post-disaster mapping. Hard work
as the Bing imagery is not super clear and the existing edits were pretty
rough, not as Les Cayes, where the mapping completeness is quite good. It
is currently a private task done by skilled mappers to be sure that the
edits are really clean. Unfortunately it makes the job non visible (I will
suggest a TM enhancement that such jobs can be visible for anyone), but if
there any skilled mapper (with tens thousands of edits) interested to join,
please ask.

Systematic, consolidated hinterland mapping in the hills is continuing. In
case of a Cholera outbreak, having a complete map over such areas is key.
First job southern Corail is done and our mapping is now focusing southern
Jeremie and Roseaux communes : http://taches.francophonelibre.org/project/45.
It fits with all mappers, feel free to join.
