Optional short intro phrase. MapRaid Philadelphia June 2015 will be 7 June at 19:00 UTC (3:00 PM EDT) through 14 June 2015. The group will be divided into 5 groups, one for each section. Each group will have both local and senior editors, one of which will be the "Group leader" - listed in blue below. Please direct all questions to your group leaders. The raid hosts will be available across all areas for added support.
Our primary mission is to handle
- PURs (Places)
- General map verification and
- Functional Classification.
Please read the entire MapRaid wiki. If you are still uncertain what to do about something you see on the map, please ask your group leader Thank You for your help with the map.
Mapraid UR Rules
(description of mapraid UR rules)
Do not close URs if the UR contains a tag such as [NOTE], [CLOSURE], or any other [MESSAGE].
Do Not Mass-Edit
DO NOT perform edits that affect large numbers of segments at once. We want to know who fixed what so we can understand how problems got resolved. Any necessary mass edits can be done at the end of the map raid.
We use micro-doglegs (very short geometry sections of segments) to engineer turn- vs. stay/keep/exit instructions. Zoom in very close to see these micro-doglegs.

Mapraid edit lists
Spreadsheets and forms are being used to streamline management of various group efforts and track important edits. Below you can find links to use these these forms, sheets, and see the lists.
|Check back here after the raid is completed to see the results and achievements|
Some editors really let their bright side out, and let their community skills shine. This is even more evident in a concerted group effort with high-density editing like a MapRaid!. Editors of all ranks working closely with each other and the Champs, really lets us everyone get to know each other, and allows certain editors to be recognized for their skills and effort.
When the Champs see someone consistently editing well, interacting well with the community, and knowledgeable of the various details from the Wiki, they can issue promotions. This can be anything from the size of a managed area, to a rank increase, or even a new role.
