I have no idea why I while away all this time, unrewarded, unrecognised, getting frustrated by Listings Editors from some foreign country deny edits, making a detailed feature edit only to have Map Maker run into a bug and refuse to upload it..
Something addictive about it though. It is a huge task trying to tidy up Christchurch, closing businesses post earthquake, ones that have relocated, markers that have been moved without updating the POI address (and vice versa), trying to keep the road closures/one way streets up to date from the Transport for Christchurch website, trying to learn the tricks to make small enough edits so they don't have to go through the review process.
I was going out to a restaurant I hadn't been to the other night, been open for over a year.. tried typing the name of the restaurant into Google Maps for directions and got no hits. So I felt compelled to jump on Map Maker and add it before we left. But I've only got a baby number of edits compared to some folks out there!
Apparently there is a Map Maker mobile app, is it any good? Doesn't exist on iOS so I haven't been able to see what it does.
