I was also excited about the results since I was a participant of Mapathon 2013.  But when I have got an email from Mapathon Team on 31st Oct, 2013 that I am also a winner of Mapathon 2013. I could not believe myself that my name is also included among the winners.


According to Mapathon team, there were over 75,000 participants for Mapathon 2013 contest who made more than 2 million contributions and their efforts were most exceptional.
