Hi everyone, 

The OpenStreetCam competition is over. Thanks to everyone who contributed! We’ll do a blog post about this soon on improveosm.org (that is the Telenav web site that has all our OSM related stuff) but I didn’t want to delay on announcing the WINNERS. I’ll post a link when it’s up. 

The numbers 1 in each country get $100 gift cards (in local dollars obviously), the two runners up in each country get $25 gift cards. We’re sending those out digitally today and tomorrow!

Australia
========
1 —> steve91 with 346251 points
2 —> robbie-bloggs with 222138 points
3 —> ConsEbt with 171420 points

New Zealand
========
1 —> ivss-xx with 354409 points
2 —> david-blyth with 332510 points
3 —> nicknz with 105825 points 

Total imagery collected is about 360000 photos for Australia, and 168000 for New Zealand. Points awarded are 1 per photo but there’s a multiplier of up to 10x (!) for roads with few or no previous coverage.

User nicknz —> I don’t have a way to contact you, if you’re reading this, please get in touch off-list so we can send you the gift card.
Everyone else we have contact info for.

If you feel you got close to a prize — we may do this again..Watch this space.

Don’t stop now! We’re using all photos to improve sign recognition for OSC and the more photos we have, the better that system gets.

Happy Mapping!
Martijn

Hi all!

Let me give you a status update on the OpenStreetCam competition. We have about a week to go before the $100 prize and two $25 prizes will be awarded to the most prolific OpenStreetCammers. If you have the app, you can pull up the leaderboard and get some idea of where you stand.

The community had collected 144,000 images in Australia before December 1, when the competition started. Since then, you collected 191,000 more, comfortably doubling coverage in Australia. Wonderful! The last few days saw a particularly nice trend upwards.

Also, a word on Waylens dashboard cameras. Telenav had customized cameras made that capture and upload OpenStreetCam imagery automatically. OSM US has around 20 that they lend to their members. A blog post[1] explains in a bit more detail what these cameras are. We have some to give out. I would prefer to give them to one or more local communities who want to make an effort to capture their entire city or area. If you’re interested, please get in touch with me off-list.

Happy mapping,
Martijn

Hi all, 

I am not sure if user robbie-blogs is reading on this list -- if you are, please get in touch to get your gift card.

For all others, the competition is still ongoing and you have until Jan 31 to make your way into the top 3 contributors over the months of December 2018 and January 2019 and win a $25 or $100 gift card.

Some stats so far: we started at 126 752 images in Australia on Dec 1, now we are at 330 648 covering 8882 km of which 6293 unique.

Happy mapping / capturing :)

Hi all,

We have the results for the most prolific OpenStreetCam contributors for Australia for the period Dec 1 - Dec 24:

********************************
#1 ---> robbie-bloggs with 127971 points
#2 ---> steve91 with 65470 points
********************************

Congratulations to you both, you have just won yourselves an $25 Amazon gift card! Please get in touch with me so I can arrange (virtual) delivery.

It's not over yet though. This was just the holiday mid point of the competition. At the end of January there will be three more prizes ($100 / $25 / $25) for the overall top contributors for the months of December and January.

If you haven't started capturing yet, no worries. New, not yet covered roads get you 10x points. That adds up pretty quickly. For example, this 20km trip is worth more than 6000 points: https://openstreetcam.org/details/1318295/0/track-info 

Best,

Folks,

We added an additional holiday prize for the 2 mappers who collect the most imagery before Christmas.
Details added on the competition page! You need 25k points minimum to be eligible for this prize, but since coverage is very low in Australia,  you collect points very quickly.

Let me know if you have any questions. Happy mapping / capturing,

Hi folks, 

We (Telenav map team) are holding an OpenStreetCam image capture competition. In case you're not familiar, OpenStreetCam is an open source / open data street level imagery collection platform for OSM. It is widely used to help improve OSM (through iD and JOSM) but there is not a lot of coverage in Australia yet. So with this competition we’re hoping to start to change that. 


The TL;DR is: collect as many OSC images as you can between now and Jan 31, the top 3 contributors get $100 / $25 Amazon gift cards!

Happy mapping / capturing!
Martijn

PS in case you’re in NZ, we have a separate competition staring there as well, https://github.com/openstreetcam/competitions/wiki/New-Zealand-Competition-Dec-2018
