Myriad of thanks to *all* for making Triple Mapping Party great success

8 mappers in Vilnius, 26+ in London, 32 in Dar, 15 in Nairobi, 15 at Mugumu Safe House and many others online joined our mapping party last Saturday!

Thanks to all of you we were able to map over one third of the entire region in Mara!!

Congratulations to the top users who were able to map an amazing number of squares, including:

saguda 60
cafrenchie 20
paul evance 55
Joe Reeve 17

Each other mapper contributed 1 to 9 squares – amazing work!!! You can also check your own contribution on roads and buildings here.

Thanks also to Polyglot and robert, who have been validating our squares so far !!

I’m not so good with numbers though, and frankly, I don’t think they speak justice to what we have accomplished during our Triple Mapping Party! 🙂 So I am going to tell the rest of the story in notes and pictures instead…

Mappers in Dar & Vilnius were met with equally bright and sunny morning!
