Rhossili and Llangennith

Posted by Steven Whitehouse on 19 April 2008 in English (English)

I forgot to mark where the foot path became road when I got to the Llangennith end of the path. I also suspect that my little bit of road should be merged somehow with the other bit of road thats already there. The internal roads of the camp site need to be mapped still I think.

I also need to ask someone about the ruins up on the hill. I have a feeling that its an old radar station, but there are a lot of things there, so it might be more than that.

I got the bottom path and the top path, but the middle (i.e. behind the old rectory) is missing from the map still and also there are other paths over the top of the hill too.

Plus I added another road from three crosses as well. Not too bad for a days work although I wouldn't recommend the footpath from Llangennith up over the hill as it rises from near sea level to over 600ft in a very short space of time. We really need to have some contours on the maps :-)

I think the road ended in the main beach carpark at the bottom of the camp site. Someone really needs to map the perimeter of the carpark and campsite, and there is another small carpark just to the north, which is accessible through a gate from the main car park.

The cycle map (http://www.gravitystorm.co.uk/osm/) and the piste map (http://openpistemap.org) have contour lines derived from NASA's SRTM3 data set. It would be something nice have as an optional layer on the main map, although it does make the tiles a lot bigger and slower to render.

Don't forget Freemap (www.free-map.org.uk) also has contours. True it only has central southern England ATM (you're in Wales I guess) but I'm going to try and fix it so it covers most of the rural areas of UK (the big cities bring my server to a halt...)
