Improving the map

HOT have had no specific requests from aid agencies, and typically Chinese authorities will be handling the earthquake response themselves, however we can work on improving our map coverage in the hope that it may be useful.

Bing imagery coverage stops with a stripe to the west of the Epicentre. "Mapbox Satellite" offers to black and white imagery of the epicentre area with plenty of potential data to add. Including missing roads and village/town outlines.
