An Android app which finds wrong, incomplete or extendable data in the user's vicinity and provides the tools to complete these easily and directly on site without having to use another editor.
The found issues are presented to the user as markers on a map (like i.e. in Osmose) that each are solvable by filling out a simple form to complete/correct the information on site. The user's answer is then processed and directly uploaded into the OSM database in meaningful changesets in the name of the user's OSM account. Since the app is meant to be used on a survey, it can be used offline and otherwise aims to be economic with data usage.
The app is aimed at users who do not know anything about OSM tagging schemes but still want to contribute to the OpenStreetMap by surveying their neighbourhood (or other places as well). Because of the target group, only those quests are shown which are answerable very clearly by asking one simple question and only those quests are created which contain very few false positives.
There are quite a few different quest types now and more will be added over time. You can see a community-managed list of all quests in the OSM wiki.
You can find a list of frequently asked questions in the wiki.
This is an active open-source project, so you can get involved in it easily! You can do so without any programming or OpenStreetMap knowledge! Just choose a task that you like.
