Dear all,

Satellite image providers are apparently holding off high-res images of 
Chile from public access.

This is an attempt at a collective assessment of need.

Based on your knowledge of the situation in Chile, and possibly of your 
experience mapping Haiti thanks to publicly available high-res imagery,

could you please write up your testimony or assessment of need for 
public high-res images of Chile ?


Think that you are writing for a journalist so:

- try to keep it short, because he (or she) is often in a hurry,

- be simple, because he may not be a specialist of mapping or of 
satellite images,

- give specific examples or facts.


Send your assessment of need to hot en openstreetmap.org and 
crisismappers-chile en googlegroups.com .


Thanks,

Jean-Guilhem
