We need to get more and better, up-to-date on-ground imagery in order to adequately map this country. YOU can help us accomplish this by using the Mapillary or OpenStreetCam apps, available for iOS and Android, which allow you to upload geo-referenced images from any smartphone. These image sequences can be taken on foot or while driving any car, bus, motorcycle or bicycle. Then, when uploaded, may be view through the website or directly on the OpenStreetMap editors. You just need to follow a few basic rules to get good useful imagery and help us map to out this beautiful country.
