Map Project is developing an application to allow individuals to register a precise, complete and easy to use address.  Here is the nitty-gritty of how Map Project deals with personal data in our application: YOU ARE IN CHARGE!

  • To create an account you will need to provide your mobile number and a user name. We will save the GPS data.
  • You decide what additional information to provide, share, with whom, and for how long.
  • You can always edit or delete all your personal information if you wish, or simply revoke to your information.

TRANSPARENCY

  • We keep the individual end-user at the centre of our development. You should not only be in charge, but feel in charge and easily understand what data is collected, for what purpose and for how long.

WE NEVER SHARE!

  • That data is yours. We never share your personal data.We simply provide you with means to do so yourself!

DATA PROTECTION

  • We use secure servers and take great care to protect your data.

Faces of addresses

Are addresses really that important? Yes! In order to show you, how the lack of precise address can complicate your life, we started new cycle called Faces of Addresses. We collected stories from people from all over the world who experienced problems with addresses. Is it easy to get a cab in Costa Rica? Is there anything that could go wrong with addressing system in Stockholm? How much time would it take to find a museum in China when you can’t ask anyone for directions? Read more about adventures with addresses!
We have got a new addressing system in part of the capital Kampala. But people are not really using it yet as the new street names are not uploaded to the online map. A customer can stand next to the street sign and tell me the name and I cannot find it on the map in my taxi app. When I finally find the customer we realise that the street names differ. I hope they will soon upload the new names to the map. That could be useful for us!
