Census of electoral signs

During the period between April to June 2017, the french OSM community started to collect the position of so-called “panneaux électoraux” (boards showing official candidates advertising for elections). The goal was to find them and add them on the map, as their precise location is unknown, they currently can be found using approximated addresses. In order to make contribution easier for everyone, a MapContrib theme was created. As it is very simple, it was used for 212 contributions during this period. This project of the month allowed us to add 1100 boards all over the country. This success can be partly explained by the creation of this MapContrib theme, which made contribution playful for new OSM contributors.

Thanks to Adrien Pavie for this feedback.
