[Talk-us] GeoBadges 1.0 for OpenStreetMap

Hello list,

Just in time for #OSMGeoweek, TeachOSM with support from Mapstory.org and
American Geographical Society, has released the first OpenStreetMap
Surveyor I badge.[1]

The badge is aimed at the newest open mappers of any age and is awarded for
successful acquisition of basic editing skills on OpenStreetMap. We
envision this badge to be the first in a constellation of more specialized
badges based on skill sets, domains, area knowledge, and so forth. For more
info on the mechanics of GeoBadges, see the AGS blog post[2].

We have a special deal during OSMGeoweek: Anyone who maps in any of the
#100Mapathons, #MissingMaps, #PeaceCorps, or #HOT events during OSMGeoweek
will be eligible to claim the badge. Just make sure to comment your
changeset with one of the 2015 OSMGeoweek hashtags so we can find it.

Happy Mapping, everyone...
