Greetings friends!

HOT's Export Tool is a resource for getting data out of OSM. It makes
it easy to define an area and export the OSM data in a variety of
formats for easy use in other tools for analysis, visualizations and
map making among other things.

HOT is currently in process of improving the tool and integrating it
with Humanitarian Data Exchange, a UNOCHA project.  This effort is
being lead by Mhairi O'Hara and being coded by Brandon Liu.

The other reason I am writing is to celebrate their first
accomplishment. A long standing bug that made shapefiles sometimes
impossible to use has been fixed! Yay! Thank you Mhairi and Brandon!

So if you are an Export Tool user and you have run in to the shapefile
bug, it has been fixed!

Exports away! http://export.hotosm.org/
