Description This geolocation pilot event will evangelize the community to adopt MozStumbler & use it on daily basis to enrich the Mozilla location-service.

We need to send out the message why it is important to have an open location-service, which can be tremendously helpful for other FLOSS projects which can leverage from it (e.g. OSM).


The event will focus on the early-adopter target audience, who already have a good sense of geolocation, maps, traffic-data etc.

We'll break the event in two parts:

  • The promotion/demonstration of the Mozilla Location Service
  • Wander around the city with MozStumbler app on the devices


The MozStumbler leaderboard should be a good motivation to keep a healthy competition among the contributors. We also need to plan around the reward model for the contribution stats. Breaking in groups, we can cover a huge part of the city.
