Apogies for cross posting on the UNOSAT post.

List of IMPORTS:
* UNOSAT/ WB/ JRC building damage
* CCCM Sites (Camps)
* PAHO Health Facilities
* CNIGS Admin layers
* soon to come (Education Cluster) Education Layer

Those releases will make OSM data outdated and will call for withdrawing osm
data for all objects (but Health Facs which will desserve a specific
treatment)  and run a bulk uploads
Health Facilities might eventually require some reconciliation work with
preexisting OSM non PAHO HFacs data

Import page to be set up on this soon on HOT Mission 3 linked to the Wiki
Project Haiti

Tx in advance for any interest in this and for support

Subject: Haiti joint remote sensing building damage GIS dataset available
for download
To: joint-assessment-haiti at unosat.org

 Dear all,

Please be informed that the joint building damage assessment GIS dataset and
corresponding PDF atlas series in support to the Post Disaster Needs
Assessment and Recovery Framework (PDNA) carried out under the lead of the
Government of Haiti following the 12 January 2010 Haiti earthquake are
available for download.

Atlas series and GIS datasets are freely available for download as the
result of a joint collaboration between: United Nations Institute for
Training and Research (UNITAR) Operational Satellite Applications Programme
(UNOSAT), the European Commission Joint Research Centre (EC-JRC) and The
World Bank (WB) who worked jointly in support of the PDNA by providing
remotely sensed (aerial photographs and satellite imagery) based damage
analysis of buildings within areas most affected by the earthquake.

To download the data, please go to


Please send questions and comments to joint-assessment-haiti at unosat.org

With best regards,

Einar Bjorgo
