Last Sunday and Monday I was in Hebron to evaluate and train a group of mapping candidates organized by representatives of the National Council for Development (NCD), a local NGO focusing on job-creation in Hebron. Currently the group in Hebron is using the computer labs at Relief International to edit and upload their data. They have been working full time for the last week and have already collected data for more than 1/3 of the city of Hebron. The district of Hebron (located in the Southern part of West Bank) is the most heavily populated region in West Bank, and It is expected that Hebron should be completed in less than two months.
The teams in Bethany started on Tuesday and have already mapped a large section of the Bethany region (located East of Jerusalem).
