Right now, hundreds of volunteers from all over the world are working together to digitize roads, buildings, and other features from satellite imagery made freely available by Microsoft and the US State Department's Humanitarian Information Unit. With the coordination of the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team, the geographic information they are creating is already being used by the Red Cross, the United Nations and other responding organizations working in the Philippines.
To get started, you can:
- Visit the project coordination page for more information: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Typhoon_Haiyan
