Event Recap:

@sethvincent Observe is an OSM mobile editor for both android and ios. It works offline, has conflict handling, and is “easy to hack on”. Built using react native, caches data from osm api with quadkey, handles offline tiles via react-native-mapbox-gl’s offline tiles manager. It’s for new & casual mappers, mapping paries, and users with a wide range of tech literacy. Another OSM related project to checkout- Scoreboard, stat tracking for OSM mapping teams.
