Hei.  Her er litt oppfølgerinformasjon til min epost om bruk av
OpenStreetmap.org i redningsarbeidet i Haiti.  Kom over følgende sitat

  I am currently in Port Au Prince with the Fairfax County Urban
  Search & Rescue Team (USA-1) out of Fairfax, VA, USA. I wish there
  was a way that I can express to you properly how important your OSM
  files were to us. Most of our team members own their own Garmin Rino
  and 60CSx units on top of the units we already have in the
  cache. Having these detailed maps on our GPS units is a big
  deal. Shortly after discovering your work I quickly spread the word
  and transferred the street level maps onto as many Garmin units as
  we could before sending the American rescue teams on the
  streets. The team members are thrilled to have this resource you
  have created. I wish you could see their faces ?light up? when I
  take their GPS unit and tell them that I?m going to give them street
  level detail maps. They have been working VERY hard and anything
  that can help them in every aspect of their mission here is greatly
  appreciated. I am spreading the word about this work to all rescue
  and humanitarian teams on the ground here in Haiti. Please be
  assured that we are using your data ? I just wish we knew about this
  earlier. THANK YOU!

Det må jeg si er gledelig nytt for en som har ivret for
OpenStreetmap.org siden prosjektet ble startet. :)
