If you’re reading this, chances are that you are excited about the upcoming State of the Map conference in Firenze, Italy! Whether you are attending in person or virtually, lots to look forward to. I will be presenting on “10 years of MapRoulette” on the first day of the conference. The presentation is coming together nicely and will feature a retrospective, but I will also be examining the current state of MapRoulette, and suggesting some paths for future development. These will be just that: suggestions. I am really interested in hearing from you, MapRoulette users and developers. What do you want to happen with MapRoulette? What place should it aim to take in the ever growing family of OSM editing and quality analysis tools out there?
Here are a couple of drafts for the the forward-looking slides I plan to present:
Let me know what your ideas are, please! If you will be in Firenze, please come to the presentation on Friday morning, right after the opening proceedings, or catch me anytime after for a chat. If there’s room and time, I will try to organize an informal session where we can discuss MapRoulette plans and ideas. Please keep an eye on twitter for updates.
