TomTom kicked off its Map Paradise Project, a once-in-a life-time opportunity for five families or groups of friends to spend two weeks on a tropical island and earn R 100 000. The Map Paradise Project will help create five new navigable maps for: Fiji, St. Lucia, Mauritius, Cape Verde, and the Seychelles. To apply, applicants simply need to fill in a form at www.tomtom.com/campaign
Successful applicants can take up to four family members or friends with them to help map a paradise island. In total, five groups will be sent on all-expenses-paid mapping assignments and each group will earn R 100 000. No mapping experience is needed, but TomTom is looking for people who enjoy exploring beautiful places, don’t mind great weather and who have a decent sense of direction.
Those selected for the Map Paradise Project will simply need to drive around the island in a specially equipped mapping car. This is the very first step in TomTom’s map making process. This mapping field work will take anything from a day to two weeks depending on how much time is spent sunbathing, swimming or exploring.
