Imagery

There is public domain imagery available for all of Puerto Rico, which is far better than than the imagery available via Bing. It comes from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, collected around 2009-2010, metadata is here. It's not available yet as a web service (we need a place to host tiles), but some of the imagery has been rendered as mbtiles and is available for download. MBtiles can be opened as a layer in JOSM after installing the mbtiles plugin. Download links are in sections above.
