Hi everybody,

Due to fires in Russia, ScanEx company have set up live updating
stream of satellite imagery from SPOT4 and Landsat satellites.

Now, they give OpenStreetMap users access to this stream.
What they want in return is mapping of burnt areas with
burnt=YYYY-MM-DD dates, taken from imagery metadata, probably with
addition of landuse=forest/field. You may also map any other things
you want from that imagery.

To access it, you should go to http://fires.kosmosnimki.ru/ (only
russian UI, unfortunately), select a satellite image you want to map,
click it and copy the JOSM WMS URL to your josm or click the Potlatch

The press-release about that or whatever it is called:

A step-by-step instruction on how to map burnt places (in Russian, too):
A rather ugly GTranslate translation of it: http://tinyurl.com/39o4v6d

Please spread it.

PS: Hope it won't drown in licensing talks, like previous landsat
announcement did.
