Dear Julio, (it's easier for me to write in English, since you understand)
"Having said that we do see that imagery will be available for wider use
in Chile as well. "
My understanding, in this context, is that "wider use" would likely
include tracing by OSM.
(But no specific imagery is mentioned)
It would probably be best to ask him (and/or specific imagery sources)
for clarification, and also how the source image would be available.
Getting in touch with Chile institutions ONEMI and SNIT would certainly
be a good thing ("any effort should be centred on their needs and
guidance"). I see there is a contact at ONEMI for the Charter at:
I have heard that Chile has now decided to accept the help of the
international community. This would be a way people from abroad could
contribute, along with fellow Chile citizens, like those whose effort
you are organising.
