Hi All

The P.R.A.Y. team did an aerial recon of some of the affected areas with a
chopper yesterday. It looks like we may have to use road to deliver a lot
of the aid. Many areas look quite affected and the military has intel that
backs that up.

I have used todays dump from http://labs.geofabrik.de/haiyan/ to overlay
OSM data over a topo map along with our target areas. (Yaaa QGis) (Sorry
about the terrible styling, but it will serve the need)

(Note, we may move further south to the Passi area if we can establisg a
need there)

I have been trying to download sat images from https://hdds.usgs.gov/hdds2/ to
see if there are roads in the area (I overlaid the ones I could get) but I
am on Smart Bro and they throttle my bandwidth.

I uploaded the my efforts to http://markware.net/pray/ (They are at the
bottom of the page)

Is there any way of getting these areas mapped, priority would be access
roads and locations of villages and any damage noted if it was possible. (
I see that some of the LandUse Polys are tagged as Typhoon Damage)

Any advice or help greatly appreciated. My hands are tied with this limited
bandwidth. I ordered a PLDT DSL Line 6 weeks ago, I am looking at the modem
but we cannot get them to activate it. It is a mystery to me as to why ..
