Kuala Terengganu Mappers & Trackers Urgently Needed

Dear Members,

Our Kuala Terengganu map is not updated as frequently as we'd like. If you reside in Kuala Terengganu we would like your help to map and track this area.

Please PM me if you are interested. You can be trained on being a tracker (the one who goes out on the field to collect road and point-of-interest data) or a mapper (the one who draws road and point-of-interest data into the map) depending on your preference. Training can be conducted online via skype or we can meet face-to-face.

Thank you.

Volunteering to build maps has a meaningful, positive impact on your community. But did you know that it can have many benefits for you too? Here are some reasons to volunteer:

To Learn A New Skill

Volunteering is the perfect vehicle to discover something you are really good at and develop a new skill. As Mahatma Gandhi said, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” It is never too late to learn new skills and no reason why you should stop adding to your knowledge just because you are in employment or have finished your education. Planning and implementing a tracklogging session of unmapped areas can develop goal setting and planning as well as budgeting skills to cover as many drivable roads with the lowest time and fuel cost as possible. Once you are experienced enough, supervising and training other volunteer mappers helps to develop leadership skills. These are examples of skills that can enhance a career but you don’t have to develop skills with the intention of facilitating your career. When you join this elite community of mappers and trackers you will meet people from a diverse skillset and experience of doing the same things differently. We have mappers who are bankers, labourers, lift engineers, teachers, lawyers, policeman, programmers, surgeons, pharmacists and househusbands. All of them with their own strength and weaknesses, prejudices, cultural norms, language barriers and idiosyncracies, but with the same goal of making better maps.

Yeah ... marilah beramai-ramai kita lukis peta sendiri dan belajar pelbagai teknik menghasilkan peta GPS yang bermutu. Sekali-sekalai kita jumpa makan roti tempayan kari kambing...
