Crowdsourcing oops

Posted by scruss on 17 October 2016 in English (English)

Statistics Canada launched their Crowdsourcing pilot today — based on imports that don't have community approval. The editor page doesn't even work on my browser, so I can report no further. Not a great way to start.

How is this based on imports? It looks like it's essentially a front-end for iD, and they seem to ask people to draw buildings and add places manually. I don't see an issue, there are already multiple tool like that (Stava Slide, etc). I say good for them for trying. The more editors the better, OSM will die if it's a walled garden.
