Games and game design techniques can be applied to OpenStreetMap contributing, and OpenStreetMap can be applied to games!
Gamification of map contributions
"Gamification" of OpenStreetMap contribution, i.e. making OSM mapping feel more like playing a game, by applying game design techniques, holds the prospect of attracting many contributors, perhaps from different demographics. The idea has been pursued by quite a few different projects:
- AddressHunter - Mobile game for gathering address data
- How did you contribute to OpenStreetMap? - scoring and ranking your contribution
- Kort Game - Gamified Mobile App based on KeepRight data
- MapATag - Mobile gamified app for adding accessibility tag, by Wheelmap
- MapRoulette - Find bugs and win the competition by fixing most of them
- Mapper baseball cards 
- OSMFight - Compares two users in a map contribution face off
- StreetComplete - Android app which finds wrong, incomplete or extendable data in the user's vicinity and provides them the tools to complete these easily and directly on site without having to use another editor.
