 But every candidate then has to be **checked by hand**, if the corresponding [[http://​www.openstreetmap.org|Open Street Map]] structure is sound. OSM is a not only free, but also offers good data quality. Badgers however already contributed back by finding a few OSM errors (essentially via [[https://​www.badge-r-s.de/​playerPublic.php?​idPlayer=10000000034|MegaChip]] so far). If a region is sound, we need to prepare an image for that region, create database entries etc. Thus there will never be awarded all possible [[badge:​ruler|Ruler]] or [[badge:​mapper|Mapper Badges]], but only ones which are considered relevant according to both automated and manual criteria. ​ But every candidate then has to be **checked by hand**, if the corresponding [[http://​www.openstreetmap.org|Open Street Map]] structure is sound.
