Sprint 2 WEU “PlaceIT!” has just started!

The initiative has ended. All information about the results and winners can be found here.


Dear Mappers,

As we informed you, we are very happy to announce that today our Sprint 2 of WEU “Place it!” Challenge has begun! πŸ˜ƒπŸ€©

What is this campaign about? 😏

The challenge is very similar to the last Sprint, so related to Places/POI’s in 5 WEU countries: France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the U.K.

Even though the campaigns are in those 5 countries, everyone is welcome to join the challenge and play along!

The idea is to solve Map Alerts related to Places in various cities that are present in above-mentioned 5 countries. The cities, in which Map Alerts are present are listed here:

Sprint 2 is related to solving Map Alerts related to the specific categories: 

  • Hotels
  • Restaurants

An extra part to the challenge? 😏

  • Hamburg in Germany will have a separate Campaign that we would like mappers to focus on first.
  • Brussels in Belgium, will join the Sprint 2 with all Places Categories available to be worked on: Petrol Stations, Grocery Stores, Hotels and Restaurants

We also want to inform you that data is also available in Prague (Czech Republic) in Eating Categories and Bratislava, (Slovakia) in all Place Categories – part of a different challenge in Eastern Europe.

  2. You can solve Map Alerts in any of 5 countries we mentioned and any city from the list we provided
  3. Solving Map Alerts means reading instructions properly and following them step by step, so make sure you watch the video  that we prepared carefully
  4. After each sprint we will choose the top 3 contributors, who solved the biggest amount of Map Alerts
  5. When we start other sprints, all the counters will be reset, so it means that if you haven’t played in sprint 2, you still have a chance to win in other sprints!
  6. After all the sprints are over, we will announce the final top 3 winners, who participated the most during the duration of whole campaign. E.g. If you were in top 3 after each sprint, you have a big chance to win the final top 3!!!

What kind of rewards can I expect? 🀩

After the end of sprint 2 we will reward with attractive prizes:

  • Threshold 1 1000 Map Alerts – everybody who reaches this will be awarded with a HERE Goodies Pack

NOTE: The prizes are not cumulative.

In case that the winner of the 1st, 2nd or 3rd place is outside of the WEU, we will ask the winner to choose a desired gift that is worth respectively 200, 150 or 100 euro. We will then purchase the item and ship it to the winner/winners. Also in case we are out of local vouchers, we will also ask WEU users to choose a gift worth 200, 150 or 100 euro and we will ship it.

Winners are on global level, so we don’t reward winners per country but per amount of contributions in the given areas of Map Alerts.
