Talk:Countries around the world send aid, help to Haiti

Is the comma vital to the title? I wouldn't have used it, but the fact that two experienced users have worked on this makes me wonder if I'm being really stupid and missing something. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 22:15, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

It seems ok to me. Feel free to rename though if you can come up with a headline you think is more suitable. Tempodivalse [talk] 22:51, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
I see what happened. I managed to read it as "aid, to help Haiti". My bad. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 22:54, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Review of revision 937504 [Passed]Edit


OpenStreetMap coverage of Port-Au-Prince and Carrefour [1]

OpenStreetMap coverage of the earthquake hit cities, has progressed dramatically in the past 48 hours. All open licensed. Can wikinews make use of an image like this anywhere?

Browse the map. This is the 'live' map with improvements still being made, including pinpointing building damage and refugee camps visible using post-quake GeoEye and DigitalGlobe aerial imagery (which OpenStreetMap has been given special permission to use).

Also available from OpenStreetMap: hillshaded version, downloads of shapefiles and garmin imgs (useful for aid workers on the ground?) Other resources and OSM coordination

Get in touch with me or anyone else in the OpenStreetMap community if you have questions or ideas for working the map data. And feel free to use the images on wikinews! (open licensed!)
