MapRoulette challenges in Romania

Hi all,

This is Andrew again from the Apple Maps team. We recently used our Atlas data analysis tool ( to look at a few types of potential issues related to roads and routing, such as roads that have overly sharp angles, roads that cross but don’t connect, routing problems, turn restrictions, places where navigation is impossible due to missing connections or potentially incorrect one-way roads, and other similar issues.

I’ve posted the results of those checks on MapRoulette, a tool that lets you go through potential issues one by one and either correct them or indicate they are not a problem. I wanted to let you know they are available in case others wanted to try fixing some of them — I also plan to go through some of them myself.

In MapRoulette you can either pick a random task to fix or click on a specific one. If you want to do tasks around a certain location, such as somewhere you are familiar with, you can click on one from the map view, and then click Next task: Nearby when you finish it.

Thank you to those who have already been doing the MapRoulette challenges, several are finished already!

Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Thanks.

Hello again,

I have updated the challenges, and put them on a single project page so they are easier to find. I also added a new one, adjoining roads where the road names are similar to each other but not exactly the same.

Here is the list of the challenges. I hope they are useful (and fun), and please let me know if you have any questions or feedback.




Buna din nou,

Am actualizat provocările și le-am pus pe o singură pagină de proiect, astfel încât să fie mai ușor de găsit. Am adăugat, de asemenea, una nouă, drumuri adiacente în care numele drumurilor sunt similare între ele, dar nu exact la fel.

Iată lista provocărilor. Sper că sunt utile (și distractive) și vă rugăm să anunțați dacă aveți întrebări sau feedback.



Also, if you are interested in Moldova, I created those as well:
