Grenoble Christmas Party and Taiz

Posted by bri g on 20 December 2010 in English (English)

Quick note to say great thanks to Christouf and the great turn out at the Grenoble Christmas party last Friday ( http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Grenoble#Christmas_Party ) - nill points for me for forgetting camera to record event - DUH!.

Recent visit to Taiz ( Yemen ) earlier this year meant I was able to map a few streets and put the place on the map, but hardly to my satisfaction - I just should have waited for BING - at least my rather noisy GPS data might give some verification to the accuracy of the sat imagery in terms of offset. It is now open season on so many places to add to the map.

Armchair mappers ( for which I count myself this cold winter ) get cracking - summer can't be too far when street surveys of all we see from BING can take place and all that extra data added.

At least with the BING imagery adding to OSM we will know that there are streets still be be tagged and manually surveyed.

This is a winter for the armchair no doubt - Go OSM

Greetings to all

Yep, it's the winter for the armchairs, I'm doing armchair mapping myself. Thanks to Bing, I've found areas that have pretty mutch no OSM data.
