I was thinking: we could have some site where we could exchange mapping services, offering to do something or asking to have something mapped.
For example, a mapper could offer:
- I will map your city for a beer
- I will name some streets for a postcard
- I will map every tree in a park for a T-shirt
- I will survey some street names for nothing, because I just like it
A user could also offer:
- I will pay a cake for mapping every building in my neighborhood
- I will give a big thanks in OSM diary if somebody map my small town
- I will send some cookies if you map the lake where I fish
I don’t know if “I will walk your dog and map whatever I see at the street. I will only use your dog as an excuse to map.” fits in mapper or user, but the service should allow cases like this too.
But I lack the skills, time and everything else for this.
I will also map a small town for such trading service ;-)
