I think that part of the survey was poorly worded, but this is what we have.
Agreed. In addition the survey asked if you were "associated with an
organisation which does organised mapping", which is worded even more
poorly. For example, if I have partaken in a single HOT mapathon, I'd have
to answer yes. Likewise, if I'd have participated in a single pub meet to
map a village somewhere in England.
Someone partaking in a single mapathon is potentially going to have
different perspective to a project manager, or someone delivering aid on
the ground, or someone that meets local mappers for a social occasion based
around cake diagrams.
