It is important to go throw the app and see how it works, it will save your time in each Sprints challenge.

  5. traffic signs
Catch wrong spots with your smart phone (MMC).
Update existing information and add missing spots.
Travel through the MC map and make edits in other countries, even if you have never been there. Use satellite view and you will find that a lot of 2D footprints of buildings are missing. Draw them according the MC rules explained in user guide. #hint: go to Uzbekistan for example - based on satellite imagery, a lot of geometry is still missing there

  • Engage friends or colleagues to participate actively (at least 10 edits) in the Map My Year challenge and earn 100 extra points per new registration – send an e-mail to us with the name and e-mail of persons that you engage.
