My goal for 2012 is to map my home town, Zirl. Luckily many streets are already done (though the access attributes are often missing), but I want to go one step further and have every house with address and points of interest (shops, doctors, ...) mapped.
I have created a plan for when I want to do what. During the month of February I will use the currently drawn streets and my GPS tracks to align Bing maps and then use that to draw every house. I will just tag them as building=yes and not add street or housenumber tags, since it is hard to tell from aerial view. As you can see, I have already started with this.
In March (as temperature permits) I will begin walking every street. I will correct wrong street paths, add access=* tags and add information about building type and address. I will also use my hiking tours to get a (hopefully) complete view of the hiking trails around Zirl. This will go on until the end of July, only interrupted by some time after the license switch where I will remap nodes that had to be deleted (though that should not be too many). I do not plan on remapping before the switch.
I hope to be done in August, when I will start my second ground survey and will go around and make sure that all data is correct, especially addresses and house shapes.
I hope that I will be done with this before it gets too cold to run around with a GPS (can't use gloves because then I can't take notes), so that I can spend the rest of the year checking the map from my computer.
It will be an interesting year for OSM and Zirl!
