Hi all,

We recently refreshed the MapRoulette challenges with new data, and added a few more countries around the continent. Here are new links to them. Let me know if you have any questions!

We recently used our Atlas data analysis tool (https://github.com/osmlab/atlas <https://github.com/osmlab/atlas>) to look at a few types of potential issues related to roads and routing, such as overly sharp road angles, roads that cross but don't connect, routing problems, turn restrictions, places where navigation is impossible due to missing connections or potentially incorrect one-way roads, and other similar issues.

I wanted to let you know they are available in case others wanted to try fixing some of them — I also plan to go through some of them myself.
