Unlike traditional MapRoulette Challenges, the new Quick Fix Challenges require no experience with OSM editing tools like JOSM or iD. MapRoulette asks you, the mapper, a question that just requires a simple yes / no answer. Here’s an example:
Does this ramp have one lane? Yes or no.
It does, as you can clearly see from aerial imagery, but OpenStreetMap does not know yet. Now, with a MapRoulette Quick Fix Challenge, we can work together and quickly check all 2,064
motorway_link ways in Tennessee that don’t have lane count information, and add
lanes=1 with one click.
This is one of a few new Quick Fix Challenges that we released on MapRoulette today. Why not try it out now?
By the time you read this, the Challenges may already have been completed…They’re addictive and Tasks are quick to fix!
Because this is a new Challenge type, I would really like to hear what you think about it, and hear your ideas for how the current implementation could be improved. Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or open an issue on Github. I look forward to hearing from you!
