The Red Cross needs help tracing the roads, building footprints and landuses in a number of sectiones communales in the North and North East of Haiti. The areas covered are large, too large for us to traverse and map solely using GPS.
We'll use this data to jump-start on-the-ground Open Street Map work by Haitian Red Cross staff and volunteers. Getting a basic "skeleton" of data down will allow us to focus our mapping efforts on improving the existing data and producing detailed maps of individual communities.

Access to this imagery is limited by the NextView license agreement.
You need to review and acknowledge the agreement.
Please trace all roads and paths first before focusing on buildings and landuses. The roads are of the highest importance; buildings are considered "nice to haves". That means you'll need to return to tiles.
Mark tiles as done when all roads are traced. Mark tiles as validated when all buildings and visible landuses are traced.
