OpenStreetMap

I have set myself a task

Posted by GMHeyes on 26 February 2012 in English (English)

Approximately 1 mile away from my home is Gatley Carrs, a small nature reserve open to the public. At the moment it is lacking in detail, my aim over the next few weeks is to provide as much detail as possible about the area. The idea being it will also be a good learning curve :)

Welcome to OSM. I mapped a nature reserve near me in detail when a friend was planning some orienteering around the place. I found that for some of the details I wasn't s sure about the tagging but what I did is at http://osm.org/go/eu6RESTo if it helps you at all. I first traced all the obvious features (lake, paths) from the Bing imagery and then took a printed copy of this and filled in the detail.

Hello mate, that looks superb! I'm a bit of a way off that sort of detail yet, a lot of this is still gobbledygook ;)
