Day 10 - Village Kastriot

Posted by IrdiIs on 10 June 2024 in English.

Kastriot is a village located in Peshkopi, and it has a population of around 6000, according to 2011 population statistics.

Three years ago, I was tasked to send volunteers for a door-to-door campaign in support of a local independent candidate from the miners for the parliamentary elections. Almost every village in the region was visited, but I wish I had the knowledge of OSM I have today. It would have been so much help. I spent so much time on the maps back then that these villages feel like home, even though I have not visited most of them yet. I am glad, I am finally mapping this villages now.

Very good to see motivated mappers for under-mapped areas ! Good luck in your project in Albania :)

By the way, JOSM is a powerful tool, so perhaps you should see some videos on how it works ! (Spoiler: you need to be motivated to get the hang of it, but the payoff for a project of more than two weeks is truly positive ! )

I can explain it to you with my small level of English how to use JOSM, let me know if you’re interested !

I will definitely watch some tutorials for JOSM, but I do not have time to start something new right now. Thanks a lot for offering to help, though. I will keep it in mind.
