I will attend this new way of mapping from home.
Anybody else interested to help the midnight mapping party from their home?
Night of the Living Maps is a global Mapathon on Tuesday 7th Feb. 2012, where all mappers come together in local meetings and trace imagery the whole night long, while the moon shines bright! It’s a LAN-party like feeling for map enthusiasts, and because you may have blood-shot eyes after 8hrs of non stop mapping, we decided to give it a zombie theme
What could be mapped?
… (do you have a idea)
what do you think?
When do we start?
I’m already in… and adding some buildings in Tel Aviv. Actually something that I wanted to do for a long while.
We could of course take care of the bugs where villages are not mapped detailed enough.
Are we sure Bing is enough up-to-date there?
No. But I expect we will have more poi if buildings are available.
it is also easier to add housenumbers (I know from Netanya).
The bing images are good engough for a approx. building.
Of course its not like in this video :
Here’s the result:
Additional to the postings of dimka you can see this post in our Google+ Profile:
With a image showing the changes…
PS: Currently you will see even more building… I just couldn’t hold my hands
Doesn’t this look nice ?
Needs just somebody that is starting to house number them
BTW: Adding buildings is helping in several ways:
- It shows them in the map so people can recognize easier where a POI is.
- Somebody else can add easier housenumbers, as the buildings can be easier defined.
- Problems are getting detected a lot easier as a bug gap between buildings is maybe a missing road?
I just couldn’t refrain from a silly smile when I saw this:
