State of the Kort Game
The First OpenStreetMap Mobile Mini Game Goes Public
Kort ist a mobile web app to fix OpenStreetMap data. It runs on the most commond browsers. The app uses the concept of gamification. Game-like elements like points (so called 'Koins') are collected by the players by fulfilling a mission, like adding names to POIs without one. All proposed solutions are validated by other players. If 3 players aggreed on a proposal it is integrated on OpenStreetMap.
This is a report about our efforts to let volunteers contribute additional mission types. Besides restructions of mission types and internal refactoring issues, the main question is, how to design the user and machine-oriented interface.
