Status by area (cake slice)

To aid evaluation of progress RBWaM has been divided into a number of areas, known according to OSM convention as cake slices. Note that these are big slices: too large for individual mapping efforts.

For the details of symbols and colour coding see full legend template. Simply, Green is best, red worst for usability.
