Jungle Bus Mapping Tool. Latest Material Design, add/edit/delete features for bus stops only.

Jungle Bus is an Android app for on-site bus stop collection.

It's dedicated to a new generation of users that don't have the patience to learn complicated tools. It's simple, straightforward and efficient.

This java-based app is a fork of OSM Contributor edited by the company Jawg Maps for the Jungle Bus project.

The main goal is to allow a small group of contributors to collect all bus stops within a city to create a transport map.

It's based on the Nicaraguan successful Mapanica project that produced the first Transport map of Managua, the capital of Nicaragua. It's the first transport map of central America.

The Jungle Bus project produces tools to lower the entry barriers for such a project, such as (but not limited to) the Jungle Bus mobile app.
