UK football Stadium mapping

Posted by Rovastar on 2 November 2012 in English (English)

I have decided to get all the 138 English and Scottish football league stadiums on OSM. It will take me months but I'll chip away.

Some local knowledge but mostly Bing tracing.

Done the A's on my list so far.

Adams Park, Wycombe Wanderers (http://osm.org/go/eus8~C2DW--)

Almondvale Stadium, Livingston (http://osm.org/go/evc~7xUzo--)

Amex/Falmer Stadium, Brighton and Hove Albion (http://osm.org/go/euq7FKbpg--)

Anfield, Liverpool (http://osm.org/go/euf9c2Gqv-)

Ashton Gate, Bristol City (http://osm.org/go/eukMSlLBl--)

One of these wasn't on the map and Already mass confusion on the names of 2 of them.

Linking to Wikipedia pages, operators, websites, adding addresses, Stands (sometimes at the moment as a separate building entity inside the stadium, still thinking of the best way to do this) among other info

I'll update the OSM wiki stub for stadium at some point to when I have seen the pitfalls/best way to map all of this.

Good mapping idea.

I have already mapped a lot of stadiums all oder the World and tried to unify tagging.

Also worked on the osm wikipage.

I like to discuss with you via Wiki or PM.

thanks for the support. Yes, lets discuss.

There are few issues that I am coming across.

I found some uses of building=grandstand, and I used it instead of building=yes to add this particular.. http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/building=grandstand#overview http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grandstand

Like in this one http://osm.org/go/xX0sHdmqL--

Hi Rovastar! You should start with W (Wolves)! Thank for the encouragement - I'm making some progress. S-l-o-w-l-y. NW

I'll be getting to Wolves soon enough. The list I am working from was in alphabetical order by Stadium Name (I should have done by club but I have started now) And now I am onto the letter H and around 1/3 of the way through but Molineux will arrive soon enough.
