Cleanup or delete

Same comment as Talk:Data collection using your memory. cleanup or delete this page?

In this case the page is more directly meshed into the navigation, so more awkward to de-link and remove

Cleaning up the guide

I am cleaning up the guide. I'd like to rename this page to "Pick your mapping technique". Because in its current title, it seemingly overlaps with "Soruces of information". Comments?

Overlap with "Mapping_techniques"

This page greatly overlaps with Mapping_techniques. Discuss at Talk:Mapping_techniques#Duplication_with_Pick_your_mapping_technique (and see Talk:Beginners'_guide#Guide_2017_cleanup)

Move Smartphone mapping to the top?

I guess using an app like StreetComplete is the easiest way to start with (and continue) to do outdoor mapping, at least. Currently the first item for outdoor mapping is "using paper", which is really likely one of the least used methods, possibly unreliable and not really the beginner-friendliest option, as one has to know what to write down and there is no "guiding".

So I'd suggest to move "On the spot editing with a smartphone" up to the top of "outdoor mapping", at least, so it is more prominent and users can start by solving one or two quests of StreetComplete. Later, they can anyway continue to edit more, but for starters using SC would likely be the easiest way and the one, where you see the results of your "work" very fast (i.e. get "awarded" for it).
