Subject: [HOT] Lost Bing Coverage for SW Haiti!?
Would anyone here happen to know or, perhaps, be able to find out what has
happened to a bunch of Bing coverage for South Western Haiti?
I posted about this in detail (with screen captures of the lost coverage) to my
blog on Mapping Haiti.
In short, the issue is that in November last year the Southern department (=
South Western Haiti) had a pretty good coverage in Bing imagery -- in February
this year, no more.
It would always be nice to have more than less but this is a bit of a
humanitarian issue and getting the coverage back would help improve OSM quality
and hence the quality of the only decent map of Haiti in a pretty wide area.
If you know how these lost areas could be brought back available (or know
someone who might know for that matter!) I'll buy you a beer of your choice for
getting the coverage to where it was!
