> Hi everyone,
> I want to introduce myself and propose a new import in northern Zambia to
> the mailing list, and open up it up for feedback. My name is Lauren
> Jacobson and I am a Developer at Development Seed in Washington, DC.
> Over the past couple of years, Akros Global Health collected the locations
> of over 268,000 buildings in Zambia through their mSpray indoor malaria
> prevention program. We at Development Seed have been working with Akros and
> USAID to process the data, and prepare it for import into OSM. This import
> will add a significant amount of data to OSM in northern Zambia.
> We've done the initial work to prep the data, check with existing data in
> OSM, and outline our workflow for how we'll conduct the import. Until now
> we've been working with the small group of collaborators at Akros, USAID,
> Ona, and Development Seed. We want circulate the proposal and plan to get
> additional feedback before we conduct the import.
> *Import Plan*
> The plan is to have the import conducted by the Development Seed team. We
> identified no overlaps with existing buildings or roads in OSM and plan to
> conduct the import via JOSM. Our full plan is outlined in the wiki.
