Submission + - OpenStreetMap buying satellite images to map Gaza (brainoff.com)

LeedsTracker writes: "Recognising that current online maps of Gaza are not great, Mikel Maron is leading a project within OpenStreetMap to put that right. Monies have (mostly) been raised to buy satellite pictures, and OpenStreetMappers have volunteered to trace features from the imagery when it arrives. They're going to need help from people familiar with Gaza's geography who can match names to traced roads, buildings, towns etc. Obviously, people actually in Gaza have higher priorities at present, but ex-pats and aid workers (for example) could be helpful here."
