I know the Instagram application is outside our scope to modify it, but currently, the link between that app and OSM is the “Fix the map” page, and we can use this page to welcome Instagram users to be part of the OSM community.
From that application, one can see an OSM map and report an error. Instagram is pointing to a generic page that welcomes users to become mappers or create notes. However, that page is not clear, and once it is pressed the map Start Mapping button, the map’s location is different from the source.
You can see what I mean from any of these videos:
- MaptimeBogota on Instagram: "Aquí explicamos como ver los mapas de Instagram que están basados en #OpenStreetMap."
- TikTok - Make Your Day
What do you thing about improving this welcome page? Instagram users are feeling interested in participating in our project with that page? are they going to start contributing? even by creating a small anonymous note?
