Dear everyone,

There is a new imagery from MapGige/HIU requested by the American Red
Cross over Leyte: http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/1129

I've seen it briefly and it covers many areas that doesn't have Bing.
ARC is not requesting any remote mapping for now.
Just informing everyone this resource exist and can be very useful in
updating many areas. Please advise Leyte mappers especially those who
participated in the Leyte training just this month.

Hey Maning,

We requested updated imagery of Leyte from Map Give. There are areas
with poor coverage under the existing Bing imagery, especially the
inland barangays. We would like better base data for some of the areas
covered by Red Cross programs tied to Haiyan recovery. We’re not
interested in the entire area covered by the new imagery but there’s a
task for it up at http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/1129. The imagery is
from Nov 2014 and (based on some brief comparisons) looks like it will
be useful for updating/improving.
