  • 14 January 2024 Hitchmap is running but data quality decreased a little over the years. With the relaunch of the map in 2022, we now also want to give its underlying data a fresh start by cleaning it where it is obviously wrong so that we can get most out of it. Join our discussion around how we should clean it and tell us about your big and small issues you currently have with the map and its data.
  • 14 January 2024 The Hitchwiki GitHub got a little makeover. Discussions are now enabled. So all issue tracking and feature requests that took place in this wiki before can be moved there. Feel free to join the GitHub organization, to contribute graphics, texts and code that are related to hitchhiking but have no place in the wiki.
