The ICRC (International Committee of the Red Cross) is looking for some support from the HOT community to digitize on top of a satellite image they have acquired over the city of Tierralta. Frédéric Bonifas is a key contact point. The ICRC will use the image and the OSM tracing to work on a Water and Sanitation project.
