TomTom is searching for explorers to map five tropical paradise islands.
A once-in-a life-time opportunity for 5 families or groups of friends to spend 2 weeks on a tropical island and earn R100 000. The Map Paradise Project will help create five new navigable maps for:
Fiji, St. Lucia, Mauritius, Cape Verde, and the Seychelles.
To apply simply fill in this form telling TomTom why you are the perfect group to map paradise. At least one from the group must be able to drive. Successful applicants can take up to four family members or friends with them to help map a paradise island. In total, 5 groups will be sent on all-expenses-paid mapping assignments and each group will earn R100 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.
“The very first step in creating an accurate map is proper field work, and that is where the Map Paradise Project comes in,” said Daan Henderickx, Country Manager for TomTom South Africa. “This project will not only create five new navigable maps, it will also give people a unique insight into how our maps are made. And where better to start mapping, than on a beautiful paradise island.”
The competition is open to residents in the UK, US, Canada, France, Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Finland, Denmark, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Ireland and South Africa. For full information visit Map Paradise Project.
