Dear HOT Community,
In the past, during this time of the year, many people are winding down with work, traveling to see their friends and family, and enjoying the change in seasons. For me, and many others, that feels like a distant memory from a long, long time ago. However, every day it is you, our community, that gives us hope that we are not as far from that place as it may seem.
I must ask however, that you join us this holiday season in giving back to the so, so many that have been impacted by disasters. Since late October, we have responded to:
If you did not notice the pattern above - we welcome all the mapping, but we are falling behind on being able to assure quality. It's a process we call "validation" where a second pair of eyes looks over the mapping - even the best mappers sometimes miss things. It does take some expertise but if you think you know OpenStreetMap well enough, then please do fill out the short-form at https://bit.ly/HOTValidators
It has been a very busy time for the Disaster Service Team at HOT, but your support literally keeps us going, and giving responders and aid agencies essential data to save lives makes it all worth it. We are Thankful for your contributions this and every year!
