Subject: OSM Tasking Tool
Interested in developping a tool to help coordination of mappers & surveyors in Indonesia.
“OSM has been shown to be an effective collection mechanism for infrastructure data. One thing that is lacking is the ability to coordinate workers surveying in the field or working remotely.
The goal of the OpenStreetMap Tasking Tool is to make it easy for administrators to define collection areas of interest and collection workflows as well as allowing workers to easily determine what areas they should be working on.”
Same principle: area divided into grids.
-> Scope was too different
HOT and Camptocamp

+ More unit tests
Then add the educational specific features:
After a important phase of testing.
Current version: 2.10
Release frequency: ~ 1 to 3 months
> 1000 projects
(Created && Mapped!)
21 000+ contributors
~ 15 000 two weeks ago
> 10 000 in Octobre 2014

It's not perfect, but
In case it doesn't work
