Thank you,

Thank you for coming everyone. We had some good, constructive conversations about:

  • mapping at scale
  • the limitations of the documentation (and mistakes at scale)
  • making available Grab’s GPS track data
  • using the same toolchain and processes for Grab and community
  • the start of discussions for better tracking of organized mappings by using a single contributor’s id and a backend that can be used to manage feedback (think corporate owned twitter accounts)
  • getting more contributors using StreetComplete
  • making multilingual maps
  • frank discussions on previous mistakes and what has since been done to improve quality and rectify mistakes

It was a good Meetup all round, with high energy levels, new friends and connections made, and the seeds for future collaboration planted.
