I mapped 100 countries in 100 days

World Map

If you for chance read my previous diary entry, I registered on GiveIt100 and documented with a video a changeset made each day in a different country. I followed some basic criteria: each day in a different continent (counterclockwise order); if I missed a day I’d map in the same continent for two days; map in a country where I didn’t map before.

So, straight from January 1st, I got to April 10th and in the last video I did a changeset in San Mateo, CA, where lives the developer of GiveIt100 (I previously mapped in USA, I know!).

The complete project is visible on

Having the NaturalEarth shapefile half filled, I should paint it green completely some time…

Someone with a planet file at hand could do a ladder of users ranked by how many countries has been visited (similar to the hydc user page)..

Thanks to Karen and Finbarr for their work!

@AndiG88 Dunno, it would be like to post on Twitter/Instagram a map? :)
