Great news about Wikimapa!

As a part of Wikimapa’s expansion stage, we’re going to Complexo da Penha slum. Seven new wiki reporters were selected and they’re about to start mapping the community hopefully next month. They were selected after a meeting where we could learn more about they. After that they had a three-day training, where they were introduced to the Wikimapa website and mobile app, learned how to map and had video and photograph classes with the mobile phone.

One of the new wiki reporters, Allan (20), is very excited about the project and can’t wait to start mapping. He said "we’re going to do what’s possible to improve our community".

Check out the pictures below.

We also would like to say that Wikimapa is about to start a brand new website and mobile app with new design and new functionalities! Mapping will be easier and funnier!

That's all for now folks! We'll be back soon with news about the begining of the mapping at Complexo da Penha.
