Project EV Relaunch…

We are relaunching our EV campaign, as we realise that having the requirement of collecting pictures for each Map Alert was proving difficult in these already very difficult times…

In this relaunch – the requirement to add photos to your edits will not be mandatory to complete the Map Alert. We’ve outlined below how the campaign will run.

In this targeted campaign we would like our community to check and verify EV charging stations across the whole of the UK:

  1. Update the EV POI location in Map Creator/Mobile Map Creator
  2. Verify the EV stations position accuracy

We will have a particular focus on the cities below:

  • London
  • Birmingham
  • Manchester
  • Glasgow

The campaign will be available on Map Creator and Mobile Map Creator and is named EV CAMPAIGN UK SECOND SPRINT.

Mobile Map Creator is downloadable for free from Google Play Or the App Store. To read more on Mobile Map Creator see our blog post here

To get started and remind yourself about how to load Map Alerts, you can refer to our blog post here.

An EV POI could be referring to an EV charging station or a combination of EV charging stations.

We would like every POI to contain below information:

  • Location confirmation
  • How accurate is the EV station positioned?

Accurate: within 25m of the provided location (and reachable, no restrictions like a fence in between)

Inaccurate: not within 25m of the provided location

That’s it! 🙂

It, of course, would be great to have those additional pictures to verify the charging stations other details, so if you are able to upload these still, please do. See our original blog post for guidance and ideal requirements on those here.

Your edits from the start of the campaign will be carried over and the prizes will remain as before and below:

Prizes will be awarded to the most solved EV map alerts (minimum of 25 must be completed and solved) and are as follows: 
 
1st Place – Garmin Dash Cam Tandem 
2nd Place – £150 Amazon Voucher 
3rd Place – £100 Amazon Voucher
4th Place – £50 Amazon Voucher 
And from 5th– 10th Place – A HERE Merchandise Package 

The campaign will run until 31st December 2020.

Good luck and thanks for your participation!
