"OSM - krijoni harten tuaj" Handbook

OpenStreetMap had a fast development in Kosovo last two years, this was made possible from all young FLOSSK members.
Project “OpenStreetMap - Krijoni harten tuaj " began and was conducted by Besfort Guri - FLOSSK member.

Who after firstly started translating the manual “Beginners Guide” in wiki.openstreetmap.org
He saw his work necessary to further expand OpenStreetMap in many different areas of Kosovo by making a handbook who teaches people how to use OSM and how to contribute in it.
After a conversation with James Michael DuPont and Prabhas Pokharel he decided to start writing the handbook, which was sponsored by UNICEF Innovation Lab Kosovo.
Through this handbook, readers can further make a research of the world in virtual maps.
