Today our Maps in the Crowd project reached a milestone, with currently 90% of the 6678 maps georeferenced. With only 10% left, the project draws to a close. When all maps have been done, probably sometime in November, we will organise a meeting in the University Library to thank our volunteers. All top-10 finishers will be invited to attend a ‘Maps in the Crowd afternoon’, including lectures, an award ceremony for the overall winner and the runners-up, a tour of our special collections and a reception. We kindly ask our top-10 volunteers to contact us, since we don’t have participants’ personal details. We will then personally invite you to our event. More information about the closing event will follow as soon as possible.
