Glasgow mapping - M74 extension and more

Posted by Hawkeye on 12 July 2011 in English (English)

The M74 motorway extension has been mapped in Glasgow and updated on the day it opened. Other well know maps still don't show it...

Congrats to the many contributors who helped with this: drnoble, Julian Gibson, tms14, marscot, callum et al.

There's plenty of other good mapping going on in Glasgow and beyond, with a goal to map >95% of all the street names in Scotland before the State of the Map Scotland 'unconference' on August 26/27.

If you are interested to join the Scottish OSM community to discuss what we have been working on and plans for the future, details can by found here:
