Member Doug Hess flagged a recent proposal by the Haitian government to set aside land for a temporary settlement site. He's suggested attempting to map this area. If you have pertinent skills, or know of someone who does, please join the discussion thread on the post below:

Hi,

A followup to let you know that the area has been entered in OSM, and to document the "process":

- the points coordinates from the Presidential decree were written in a text file (fixing a typo: a pair of digits were repeated 3 times, reduced this to 2 times to make the size of the number consistent with the others),
- which was converted to shapefile with gen2shp utility program,
- coordinates where transformed from UTM 18N to lat/lon, with ogr2ogr -s_srs EPSG:32618 -t_srs EPSG:4326
- shapefile was converted to .osm with ogr2osm.py,
- .osm was imported with JOSM.

For the South East side of the area, road RN1 (which was in OSM, sourced at CNIGS and CartONG) was used.

The area is defined as a relation within OSM, with admin_level=10, which should hopefully make it show on the maps at http://www.openstreetmap.org, at least at high zoom levels, once the tiles have been updated (thanks to Richard Weait for his indications).

The relation is there : http://www.openstreetmap.org/?relation=546964

Comments are welcome, of course.


By the way, I am wondering whether this could not be a communication support for OpenStreetMap. E.g. let journalists that might wish to write about the Port-auPrince IDP relocation offer know that there is a map that they can use freely under its license...

See e.g. : http://www.metropolehaiti.com/metropole/full_une_fr.php?id=17454


Best regards,

Jean-Guilhem
