high-resolution aerials available for city of Dortmund / Germany

Posted by WernerBeckmann on 22 March 2010 in English (English)

aerowest (, a company offering areals and geo-related services, has provided OSM with high-resolution pictures of Dortmund (1px = 5 cm) for an evaluation project.

While mappers in Dortmund can correct and extend the map, including especially housenumbers, aerowest is interested to see, if they can profit from such a partnership. Especially the company would like to evaluate if housenumbers and addresses are of higher quality than the commercial offerings.

See Dortmund homepage for more info (most still in German yet).

Location: Klinikviertel, Mitte, Dortmund, Regierungsbezirk Arnsberg, North Rhine-Westphalia, 44137, Germany

@davespod: I think this is very relevant information—certainly not spam!

Yes, exciting news! I wish they would have used Hamburg, then I could contribute. :-)

Indeed this is impressive! Apologies once again. The amount of spam in the diaries lately has really got on my nerves. The name of the company quickly followed by the link, coupled with my extreme tiredness caused the knee-jerk reaction. This is no excuse - I should have read your post properly.

I hope the company likes the results of their evaluation and that this is the start of something good.
