This does not mean that your help is not needed :

  • If you travel to Madagascar, all your GPS files are very much appreciated.
Especially under forest cover.
Smoothness of roads is something you can add too: bad road travel are usually remembered ! ;-)
  • If you use satellite imagery from home, add roads, tracks and residential area, only if you have a good Bing definition.
Correcting roads from poor imagery is too much work. Check the Bing Imagery availability with the link below:
  • recommendation : Begin mapping with the coast.
If a hurricane hits the country, this area is needed first (notably the Eastern coast which will be hit first with the highest damages).
