Do you have ideas of things to do / tasks ?
I think satellite imagery should be available "soon" for tracing.
Do you guys know the impacted area ?
Maybe you could plan some kind of work plan for volunteers to help ?
(e.g. with a wiki page, or a shared spreadsheet on Google Doc)
How to split the work ? By area ?
What would be priority themes ?
Locate damages announced in the news ? (Damaged roads, collapsed
bridges, maybe damaged buildings ? )
How to coordinate ? talk-cl (OSM specific), crisismappers-chile (more
general, e.g. also including Ushahidi), osm-talk (to get general OSM
Is there an IRC channel ?
(The most relevant I am aware of might be #crisiscommons on irc.rhok.org
Of course, there is also #osm on oftc.net, for OSM stuff)
(puedo hablar espanol o traducir si es mejor /
I can help translating to / from Spanish)
(Experience with Haiti mapping - especially regarding health facilities,
PAHO (Pan American Health Organization) Master List, etc.
professionally works with satellite images - research and software
development for image analysis, segmentation...)
