Hello, everyone,

We used public instances of OSM QC tools such as Atlas and Osmose in addition to internal validation to detect potential map data issues in several African countries.

The checks are mainly focused on potential issues that would impact the road network and tags that affect automotive navigation applications.

We have created five new regional projects in Africa designed to fix these issues. The projects are organized around one rule violation per country for each unique challenge. We hope this will make the challenges easier for active users in each country to find. We also structured the challenges to align with OSM tagging guidelines.

Here are the projects:
