Bing aerial imagery priorities by Steve Coast

Steve Coast is requesting for cities / countries where a better bing coverage is needed to map in Openstreetmap.

Here is the request from him :


##################################################
Hi,

I'm speaking personally and there are no guarantees here but I'd like to  get input on what areas you would like Bing to prioritise for aerial 
and/or satellite imagery in the coming year. Please mail  scoast at microsoft.com with the area in question (I'd love to accept  bounding
boxes but don't really have the time so cities/countries are the best).

I will pass this on to the right people and we may or may not be able to
help.

Thanks

Steve

Second post:

I had tons of emails in response to my request for ideas of where we
could prioritise imagery. This is not to be taken that we will
prioritise based on your input but that's my hope.

I've put the salient bits of every email in here:

     http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Bing/Priorities

If you can help me figure this in to a coherent page with some idea of
how to prioritise all the requests that would help me take this to the
next stage.

Thanks

Steve

Re: Bing aerial imagery priorities by Steve Coast

I have requested- just now - a better coverage for Jerusalem and Haifa.

If you have another not covered place or know a area where a higher zoom level is really needed, you are welcome to write Steve by Email scoast [at] microsoft.com.

Re: Bing aerial imagery priorities by Steve Coast

I have added the following content to the request form. If there is any other demand please request and I will add it:


Israel (3x)

There's still a need in hi-res imagery for Israel. One addition zoom level would be amazing for the biggest cities.

    Haifa, partly not covered at all by Bing => http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=32.80 … 96&zoom=16
    Jerusalem - should really get a higher zoom level and higher qualitiy sat images. Currently very blurish. => http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=31.77 … 89&zoom=17
    Modiin, has poor and parly not covered Bing satimages => http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=31.90 … 24&zoom=17
