Hi,

Forwarding in case anyone interested has time to contact Lorant to ask 
for the data, and work on its integration in OSM...

Hello Jean-Guilhem,
CAS confirmed the data can be used for whatever purposes, no restrictions.
We as UN will provide them a thank-you letter later, that's all they need.
I also got a few more files in the mean time, more landslide and 
suspected camps locations.
Can provide as needed.
The river name issue might need some research, you could be right, not 
sure. It is the one S of Carrefour indeed. 
Main point was to make sure we label all main geographic features as 
possible. 
Thanks for checking it.
Lorant

    Lóránt,

    Would the licence allow integration in OSM ? If yes, this would
    likely be interesting.

    Regarding "Riviere Frorse", thank you for pointing out a possible
    lack in OSM.

    However, if you are referring to the river that runs through
    Carrefour, it seems that, at least on the following maps, it is
    labeled as "Rivière Froide", as in OSM.
    (Might this come from an erroneous reading on a scanned map ?)

All,

The Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Institute of Geography assembled 
a team to try and help in the Haiti response as well, based on their 
experiences with the Wenchuan earthquake recently.
They recently shared with us (UN-SPIDER) their results so far, for any 
further distribution in case of interest to anyone.
Geoeye imagery was used to extract:
- a road network for PaP and surroundings (e00 file)
- a KML and shapefile of collapsed buildings in and around PaP (points 
and polygons)
- a KML and shapefiles (point) of all fresh landslides suspected for the 
Riviere Frorse valley (btw. I cannot see a label for that major river on 
OSM, but it is there on GoogleMaps, might be worth labeling most major 
features)

Clearly there is plenty of this work done by now on all sides, but if 
any of you is interested in seeing the files, to compare or integrate in 
any way, pls let me know and I will be happy to pass them on.
Our Chinese colleagues are also willing to share other experiences 
following their work on Wenchuan, such as automation of the 
post-earthquake image analysis for more rapid overviews, I will pass on 
any new information I receive.

Best regards!

Lorant
