I've been doing for the past few days and it's been a really neat way to get into improving #OpenStreetMap little by little. Tonight I sat down to add ten nodes to a river, and ended up posting up over 1000 changed nodes just now. In addition to greatly improving the way for the Ibina River in the DRC in Africa, I added over 50km of previously-unmapped tributaries while I was at it, and tidied up a few nearby villages:

I'm now up to 9 days in a row, and 27 points. Onward and upward :)

I keep notes of what I do, and then spend ~1½hr to assemble into this. It's work, but I initially thought I had done very little in Aug, but when I wrote it all down, I realised it's not small. 🙂
