The evolution of Janisław's avatar.


Janisław discovered countryballs through "Radon86", someone who created SpeedArts from countryballs. Janisław is not sure how exactly he discovered mapping, but he probably discovered mapping for the first time in elementary school through Netryno Mapping's history of World War II. He became more interested in mapping at the beginning of the 3rd grade in junior high school when he became a fan of Turtle HD Mapping and his APE S1 series. After watching a mapping tutorial, he decided to create his mapping channel called Mapping Janisław. On the same day (October 13th, 2018), he wanted to start his APE series, unfortunately, when trying to create a second episode, he accidentally deleted all of his files. When trying to make the second season it happened the same. Janisław was about to give up, but he found a desire to revive the channel, and so on October 25th he made the third, and first successful attempt to continue his career.

After uploading his first episode, he met Bartodziej Mapping who helped the new creator get a few fans by adding an information film to his channel, asking for help for this time of the new mapper - Mapping Janisław. Janisław got a proposal from Bartodziej to join a group on Facebook which also included: DroneQi and Fakofej HD Mapping. He met his first mapping friends in this group.

DroneQi, Bartodziej and VConorV on the discord server "Dronizja" decided to create in January 2019. a mini group called Grevislan, that's what their friendship was called. Today, Janisław is perceived as one of the four founders of GV, which is not true, because he was added in mid-February and the real founders are the mappers listed at the beginning.

Over time, new members were added and the "Grevislan Academy" was established, which had about 15 members, unfortunately it was not very successful so it was dissolved. Currently, Grevislan has 9 members (DroneQi, Janisław, Bartodziej, VConorV, PolishTortoise, Polish & Hungarian, Lolkowski, Tyshian) but the most important people are: DroneQi, Bartodziej, VConorV and Janisław "The Big Four."
