We are heads down on processing imagery from DigitalGlobe, Airbus and other major satellite providers to aid the Nepal earthquake response. So far, we have processed and made available over 3,000 square kilometers of updated imagery.

We are coordinating all work on the HOT OSM Imagery Requests Github repository. Once imagery is processed and ready for tracing, we make it available in one of the HOT tasks where possible.

Open a ticket for us where you see need for new imagery!
