Mapper Diaries

Here are some excerpts from the short diary entries that mappers have made upon uploading and editing their data in OpenStreetMap over the past three weeks:

This was my first day to do mapping and the day was quite intresting. Being that it was my first time to use a GPS machine. In the morning we went for afieldwork using GPS and we cuptured alot of thinngs. In the afternoon we used paper walking. So its quite good that as days goes on i will be knowing alot concernin Kibera. THANKS

Great to have volunteered in this exercise. For sure, there are lots of new stuff to learn ranging from the kibera community response on the mapping exercise and the new enhanced technologies.

mapping Lindi on this day was very cumbersome considering the fact that the rain had caused a lot of mud making it difficult to explore far flung areas of Lindi.

Hello, guys it has a very nice experience to have new faces in carrying out Kibera map where we are trying to collect the hidden features and bring them into light. These will also help people of Kibera and country wide to access and know what we really have, positive changes and reality of Kibera. Thanx.
