[HOT] Launching MapSwipe

Hi all,

I've tested MapSwipe, and I've been surprised: the same tile is being 
repeated directly for the same user several times. Continuing the map 
work, a task after an other, is resulting in repeating the same task, 
sometimes.

I apologize my english.

Best

>> Hi all, how are you?
>>
>> You might have heard mention of a new tool we are planning to launch on
>> Friday called MapSwipe. It's a Missing Maps initiative, developed by MSF,
>> designed to support OSM / HOT mapping. The idea is that people swipe
>> through imagery on their phones and identify areas with specified features
>> (roads, buildings, etc). The resulting data can then be plugged into the
>> tasking manager, meaning mappers have less empty bush, jungle, desert to
>> scan through, meaning we can all get on with mapping a bit quicker.
>>
>> This is a first instance funded by MSF, so we will start off with Missing
>> Maps tasks in there, but we hope to soon open it up to others. The code is
>> also all on github.
>>
>> The app will be available on Friday, but there is a landing page already
>> ready [1 <http://mapswipe.org/>] and I also did an interview on the BBC
>> world service show, Click, last night [2
>> <http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p040g4qr>] in case you want to have a
>> listen.
>>
>> When it comes to the launch on Friday, we would love your support in
>> getting the word out. The possibilities of using this kind of tool at scale
>> are fascinating and your help amplifying the message would be superb.
>>
>> If you have any questions, just give me a shout!

>> Cheers,
