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. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Which makes mapping on the go hard....
Password reset ahoy

For those wondering, there's a new quarterly mapping project in to map things that are traditionally under mapped in , or that help marginalized people. "free WiFi" could be an option

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?

I've been using for mapping on the go the Art few days. It's great how you can configure for fast adding custom PoIs, and you can download, and work on, a large area for regular map usage! Some bits can be a little fiddly.

I've been doing some traditional mapping. Going around a city on my bicycle, surveying things, with a goal in mind. "OK, I've recorded that, time to head off and go here next". It's quite fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

Long time mapper @gregorymarler@twitter.com makes videos while surveying ("OSM Diaries"). It's great to see the bread and butter of local mapping. The sort of every day contributions anyone can do by just walking around an area youtube.com/channel/UCOzESllbu

Look at the tagging mailing list.
See a 38 post thread about tagging special flower beds.
Oh , never change.

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
