Today I found out that it’s actually a lot easier to contribute to Open Street Map than I thought. There are some serious gaps in house addresses in my area and I was painstakingly using the built in browser editor in the browser.

But, you can use a FOSS app (available on fdroid) called StreetComplete that makes it a lot easier to help out filling in the gaps in your local map data.

It’s really fun - kind of like Pokémon Go but you are actually making an impact 😁

    I installed it. Judging by the mass of blank info, I guess I’m the only person around here using it lol. 😳

      I became nr 10 or so in my country just by adding nearly everything SC can ask in … a 10 block radius around my house.😁
