As said in my last post, Simone Cortesi came here in Montesilvano for two days. Simone thought to try to map a very little town, to see and test how much time is needed to map a whole town. After a quick look on the slippy map, we decided to map a little town nearby, which is called Elice.

We went there in the afternoon by his car, and, after a coffee and a little tour around Elice, we found that this town couldn’t be mapped by car! So we parked the car and started to discover every Elice’s street by feet πŸ™‚

We both took GPS traces and photos, while Simone took note of every street on a paper. We found to map the whole town in few more than 1 hour, with much fun, also seeing the faces of the wondering inhabitants πŸ™‚
