New High Resolution Images in Openstreetmap available in Pangasinan

I am proud to announce that OSM-PH received Quickbird high resolution images from DigitalGlobe.  This data donation is part of DigitalGlobe’s assistance to our humanitarian efforts.

Thanks to the Openstreetmap community (especially Andy) for helping us create map tiles and host them in OSM’s dev server.

You can now use these images to trace roads and other geographic features using OSM’s data editors.

This project is OSM-PH’s contribution to provide updated geospatial data to assist disaster recovery and rebuilding efforts.   Join the OSM-PH mailinglist for details on how to use the imagery.

  1. I did some sketching last night in the northernmost end of the QuickBird imagery. Is that kind of contribution useful?

    If so, then somebody could do a lot more to promote a crowd-sourced remote sketching initiative similar to the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team work in Tehran. At the moment there’s not much information out there about this, but maybe you’re deliberately working on the map with a more on-the-ground perspective.

  2. Yes, I saw your edits. Thank you! It is very useful for a start.

    We need more contributors. Right now, some areas are heavily damaged by the typhoon, locals are unable to connect to the internet. Once the community have recovered we will then coordinate with locals to fill in the gaps.

    I have posted the announcement over the mailing list and the wiki http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Humanitarian_OSM_Team/philippines_ondoy

    Perhaps you can ask other mappers to help out?
