Project of the Week: Russian Fires


Wildfires, fed by drought and high temperatures, continue in Russia.……

The Project of the Week is to mark burned areas on the map using
updated satellite imagery. This Project of the Week requires
familiarity with interpreting low-resolution aerial images and
advanced OSM tools and techniques and may not be suitable for newer
mappers. OSM contributors Komzpa and andrewsh have provided some
background and instructions for advanced mappers.

The original instructions, in Russian, are here.
