#MapLesotho – How do you map yours?

Following our milestone of achieving 60% complete yesterday, I thought it was time for a video.

Here I am using JOSM to map a tile, tile 1209 to be exact. It’s sped up, so please don’t think I can map that fast!

#MapLesotho Edits January – 11th October

We’ve come along way with #MapLesotho so far this year, where recently we achieved 52% of our rural mapping task complete.

Now maybe is a time to look back at the massive amount of edits made by everyone involved.Over 80 individual mappers have contributed to the map so far. Thank you! There are now over 1.7 million nodes in Lesotho, where there were only 500,000 in July 2014.

Below is an animation showing the diff’s (the changes made to the OSM database) from January to 11th October 2014.

Spread the word we’re only counting down to completing the first pass of the Open Street Map basemap for Lesotho now, 48% to go! Give us a hand by taking a tile on our HOT OSM Rural Task.
