Hi Karl,

Unfortunately the rural areas we are interested in are not covered by the
tile. The area is more or less this one :
rs=B0FTFTFFFFFFFT> &lat=18.3032&lon=-72.45866&layers=B0FTFTFFFFFFFT


Could you explain me something about the link you gave me. Why is there no
satellite imagery in the areas with colored tiles near Jacmel ?


Other question : where can I found the signification of the color of the
tiles ?

Hi Vincent

We have been mapping Jacmel city in the past three days. The city itself an
east up to Catadat, north up to Bassin Caiman, and west up to Desmarattes is
mapped as good as possible. The area is covered by DigitalGlobe imagery
whose quality is, unfortunatelly, not homogeneous. 
Jacmel center has been enriched with street names and POIs provided by

Depending on which rural areas you are most interested in GeoEyes Ikonos
satellite provides coverage too, but only more up north. 

Have a look at this site: http://projekte.eiops.de/osm-matrix/. Can you tell
us what tiles in this matrix you are most interested in?

I’m collaborating with a NGO which is working in the South-East of Haiti :
Jacmel City and the surrounding country-side (South-East department). We
need urgently to evaluate the situation in rural areas because they are
difficult to access by land and it seems that there huge damages in those
areas too (although there are no journalists in the rural areas
). We are
looking for satellite imagery and other map resources to help evaluate the
earthquake damage in this area.


At the moment I have not found recent high definition imagery of this zone
and the information in OSM is quite poor. Could anyone  tell me if I can
find it somewhere or if it will be available soon ? Any kind of help is


Best regards
