Update #3 on Vanuatu (second deployment)

This is an update on our current activation to undertake housing damage assessments in Vanuatu.

The situation at 1400 UTC 9 April 2015

We have more images!

After a rather frustrating wait for new images to be uploaded (not complaining, this is brand new stuff) a new batch was uploaded at 1400 UTC yesterday. Plenty of people have already been clicking and there are plenty more images to be processed.

At time of writing 62% of the latest batch have been processed. Good job everyone.

So far 100 volunteers have processed over 1000 images. We’ve drawn 1200 blue polygons, 500 orange polygons and 800 red polygons.

When 80% have been processed, the next batch will be added.

We were activated 5 April 2015 at the request of the World Bank and the government of Vanuatu.

The deployment has been extended until Friday 10 April.

Our task is to use the MicroMappers platform to analyse images taken from Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).

We shared with you this http://simonbjohnson.github.io/cyclone-pam-SBTF-3w/ which Simon Johnson from British Red Cross has put together to show who is doing what, where in Vanuatu. This has recently been updated with more data collected by SBTF volunteers.
