I compared the given AOI to the fire perimeters that were shown on GDACS and there was good overlap but to keep the projects tighter to the area affected, I ended up using the fire perimeters from GDACS as a second, larger, fire had developed...
So we ended up with 3 projects to cover the initial fire and 5 projects to cover the second.

Even with the Haiti and South Sudan projects, these all went quite fast; validation staying very close (~20% difference between mapped % and validated).

Feedback thread (what should we keep doing? what went wrong? what should we do differently?)
1 good thing - Using the fire perimeters and QGIS to make a convex hull around the area worked very well to create projects

@_slack_hotosm_U01CNEBJTEH:matrix.orgClaudio de los Reyes Thank you for the debriefing Russ, and thank you to everyone that contributed to that activation. 12:38:10

1 thing that didn't go as well - we didn't have much interaction/participation from the local community in the response beyond the initial request. Slack maybe isn't a platform they use often and more time should have been spent trying to better establish that conversation.

@_slack_hotosm_U01CNEBJTEH:matrix.orgClaudio de los Reyes I did some adjusting to the numbers based on the feedback of wireguy, so thanks to him too! From next week we should be posting trends again 12:40:23

@_slack_hotosm_U01CNEBJTEH:matrix.orgClaudio de los Reyes Russ, do you want to talk about this? I know there might be some updates here 12:40:51

1 thing we didn't have much control over, but coordinating the 3 responses at once made it difficult to expand our 'AOI' into other countries dealing with fires along the Mediterranean.

@_slack_hotosm_U1JS7R5UK:matrix.orgrussell.deffner Sure, was just giving my good, bad, change responses 🙂 12:41:27
@_slack_hotosm_U1JS7R5UK:matrix.orgrussell.deffner We ended up shifting gears a bit at the last protocol workshop as yesterday we had a presentation to the HOT senior management team about the progress, and how to ensure we capture their input on the protocol development. 12:42:56
@_slack_hotosm_U1JS7R5UK:matrix.orgrussell.deffner So, we will still be working on the 'tier structure' for activators next week. 12:43:18
@_slack_hotosm_U1JS7R5UK:matrix.orgrussell.deffner This is a critical point in the protocol development because it will be the back-bone to what changes for the volunteers looking to join Activation teams. 12:44:07
@_slack_hotosm_U1JS7R5UK:matrix.orgrussell.deffner Even if you are not currently/fully engaged in becoming an Activator yet; I think your input is still extremely valuable as you consider what the 'ideal' training workflow would be like. 12:45:12
@_slack_hotosm_U1JS7R5UK:matrix.orgrussell.deffner Tony Bendell is a perfect example as he is working on the courses now, but also joining the workshops and giving incredible feedback and input on how it will look. 12:46:14
@_slack_hotosm_U01CNEBJTEH:matrix.orgClaudio de los Reyes Any New Business Ok, anything else? 12:47:47

The training and attending the workshops have been very rewarding and I have learnt a lot.

@_slack_hotosm_U1JS7R5UK:matrix.orgrussell.deffner It would be great to get an update on translation/localization if not today, then next week 12:49:53

@_slack_hotosm_U01H266GAP8:matrix.orgTony Bendell Just PORT-SALUT ARRONDISSEMENT SUD, HAITI #9181 this is a large are still to map - will there be more help here. Much of the mapping is not recent so a bit to do. 12:52:02
@_slack_hotosm_U1JS7R5UK:matrix.orgrussell.deffner And we are getting closer to be able to start testing some AI-Assisted Damage Tagging projects, so stay tuned as we'll likely need to recruit some volunteers to help going through the workflow. 12:52:29

I'm not anticipating adding that to the response, but let's look into it; maybe just bumping it to urgent would do?

@_slack_hotosm_U01CNEBJTEH:matrix.orgClaudio de los Reyes Seems like I miscalculated, it was not a short meeting today 😬 Feel free as always to go back to the threads, and comment, especially today for the Algeria feedback. 12:57:11
@_slack_hotosm_U01CNEBJTEH:matrix.orgClaudio de los Reyes Thanks everyone! 12:57:33
@_slack_hotosm_U1JS7R5UK:matrix.orgrussell.deffner Thanks Claudio! 12:57:53
