I am loving , the editor. I always thought it was cool, but I've used it heavily over the last few days. I think it's part of the future of . It's how we can beat Google

Nearly every time I go away, I do something to change my password or credentials. And forget to update the apps on my phone. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Which makes mapping on the go hard....
Password reset ahoy

I wonder... Would mapping in what restautants/cafes/libraries/etc have free WiFi help people? If you can't afford/get Internet at home, then you'd use public WiFi, right? So adding that detail to would help people?

This is cool. The community have their videos on their own instance! Community owned, less centralized systems!

Interested in mapping things in traditionally under mapped? Some of us are gonna focusing on one thing per quarter and improving that. We're collecting ideas & making a poll on what to focus on first. Everyone welcome to take part.


I've been using (and partially ) on my phone to contribute to while walking around a town. I'm to used to armchair mapping! It's easy to forget that actual surveying can get things you can't get on aerial. Especially for PoIs like shops etc
