We are strategising about 'feedback-mapping' whilst doing 'non-camp 
refugee' data collection in the Northern Uganda refugee settlements. I 
am trying to identify a tool which can edit polygons by smartphone from 
the field. The imagery will be too old for the new settlements to show 
in, say, JOSM. The reality on the ground for us is one of dynamic 
mapping in this ever-expanding settlement context, and Maps.Me, OSMAND, 
OSM Tracker, OMK and other tools in discussion are fine to input points, 
but we are stumped by how to 'draw' whilst in the field... Does anybody 
know where this is up-to?
