Hi Felix,

Great initiative! It's a question I often get, and thus information I 
have been looking for at times. Will try to write up a convincing case 
study for MapUganda and Ramani Huria shortly. You probably had a look at 
the Press/Recognition folder on the drive already (there's an article 
from the Canadian Armed Forces on Nepal there, Guardian one on MM)?And 
we could request some of our partners to write up a case study? I know 
some of them have amazing case studies of OSM data interacting with 
their field ops (you may already have set this in motion as well ;)
