Eight women, two men… six districts out of ten in Lesotho… five JOSM users and five ID editor users… travelled to Maseru on Wednesday as the top ten openstreetmap users of the Mountain Kingdom.
It was a happy day for #MapLesotho’s elite mappers. Those that had finished in the top 10 during the recent challenge gathered in Maseru. They were called there by the Chief Physical Planner (‘Masetori Makheta) in order to be presented with their prizes after finishing very high in the ranking during the phase of the competition. Second place to tenth place received a beautiful HTC Vivid phone courtesy of Mapillary.
Tshedy, as the no 1 mapper in Lesotho was given a Samsung Galaxy Tab A to signify her huge achievement in leading the Board throughout ten weeks except for two occasions. Tshedy herself says: “I mapped like crazy, but I was mapping before the competition was announced and I am mapping almost everyday since then. I guess that makes me an addicted mapper.”
All of the smartphones are loaded with applications which support mapping: OSMand, maps.me, OSM tracker, as well as Mapillary of course. The ten mappers now are further enabled to support more mapping for the entire team. #MapLesotho had another successful chapter drawn to a close.
