Priorities

Posted by Horza on 12 February 2018 in English (English)

I've been outlining places that haven't been outlined before and tidying up work done by others where lines aren't straight or buildings aren't squared off where they should be. There's effectively an endless supply of both types of work.

What's it best to focus on? Do people have preferences? That said, doing more of both has definitely helped with my workflow and knowledge/aptitude with the tools available.

Also, is there a place for open questions like this? I have so many questions about best practice that the wiki doesn't answer or has ambiguous answers too.

Mapping buildings with roofs at different levels from awkward angles

Posted by Horza on 9 February 2018 in English (English)

This building can only be seen in the Esri imagery and that is from an awkward angle. How do I mark out the outline of this building accurately?

Edit: Building at 53.46, -2.23. Corner of Burleigh Street and Denmark Road

2nd Edit. Guess I should have mentioned. The east half of the building is taller than the west half. That's where the problem is. Sorry.

Location: Rusholme, Manchester, Greater Manchester, North West England, England, M14 5SU, United Kingdom
