First post: on Cassano delle Murge

Posted by Fradeve11 on 19 February 2009 in English (English)

Hi all,
this is my first post on OSM diary... after a week of work, today I've uploaded all the traces recorded during theese days. And, I've seen that the Italian OSM database has not any point for the small(?)[1] city of Cassano delle Murge, in Apulia. I've added one. Also, I've traced the Forest of Mercadante from Potlatch, but we need for this more detailed geodata :(

Write back soon ;)

[1] 12.000 abitants, more or less...

Location: Casino Fasano, Cassano delle Murge, BA, Apulia, Italy

12.000 inhabitants fully warrants place=town, good catch.

One thing I noticed when looking at the map there: the SP236 and SP205 and SP83 etc. parts of the road names should be in the ref tag instead, like this: ref=SP236. This will give you nice little boxes with this number in them, and the real name of a road in addition.

Have fun mapping!

yeah, Colin!

Thanks for the hint, that zone was not mapped by me, so I don't know what other user have produced, I'll get a look ;)
