OpenStreetMap

Finally using GPS again

Posted by Niels Elgaard Larsen on 16 May 2011 in English (English)

After we got the the Fugro Aerial maps of Denmark we have been busy tracing roads.

I have focus on South/West Zealand and Island (postal codes that start with 4)

Fugro is great and we are making a lot of progress. 97 percent of addresses are covered in the 4xxx area. We know that because user Findvej have imported all addresses.

Fugro is from 2005 and the address data is current so we have spotted many addresses that does not correspond to houses or roads on the Fugro aierals.

Usually we make roads based on gussing and tag is a proposed with source=fantasy.

Yesterday i passed such a proposed road and I had my GPS logger on me:
http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/changeset/8163654

There was only a few houses there, but all the roads were build. At the rest of the addresses just some poser and antenna cables were visible.

Unfortunately I missed the nearby Egehaven streets.

Good job Niels!

FYI: We are currently at 91.6% way to street coverage at 500m in all off Denmark up from 78.7% when Rasher started outputting data 11 weeks ago.
