SpeedIt 3rd Sprint campaign! 

Dear cartographers, 

These days late winter days it is Carnival. Carnival is a time to enjoy open-air parties, masquerades, masked balls, historical/political re-enactments, and street performances.  

To mark the occasion, we at HERE Technologies are launching Sprint 3 of our major speed campaign. This time we will be focusing only on the Benelux! 

Our main goals are still: 

  • Checking the street segments where ‘discontinuous’ speed limit situations are displayed and which appear to be incorrect. 
  • To contribute to EU ISA regulations and to the improvement of road safety. 

To do this we have identified new areas for which we ask you to resolve Map Alerts. Resolved Map Alerts will be counted from 1 March 2022 for rewards. 

How do I join this challenge?
