|Drawing houses||about 4 years ago||
I've drawn buildings by surveying them counting paces ( I know that 63 of my paces = 100m) parallel to the walls. If you want to get precise alignment you can take bearings with a hiking compass. If you don't have a compass then getting a GPS trace as an "extension" of a building edge by walking in a direction that a wall would take if it hadn't "gone around a corner". This does assume that you can see or walk all round a building - not alway appropriate for residential areas where you can't get into people's back gardens ( but you can always ask them)
|How I manage to do it||over 4 years ago||
Don't worry - you're not alone! I have exactly the same problem no matter how careful I am, but my ommissions are usually at the surveying stage. Going back to areas you'll be surprised how much you missed on the first survey. And you can always collect address data on revisits :-)
|Motorways||almost 5 years ago||
I was re-aligning the motorway with the tons of public GPS tracks, which included my own, which showed a consistent "average" track about 20-30m away from the rendered way. So I hope I've improved things rather than made them worse!
|Two Tools for Data Quality||about 5 years ago||
Great tool! Thank you very much. I've just discovered restriction relations and your tool has helped greatly. It's also nice to see the road signs rendered. Would be nice to have UK symbols for the UK ;-)

Once we've finished Birmingham we're deciding what we should do next. Bus routes/ Black Country/redditch/Bromsgrove? it gets problematic for most of us to travel outside the Motorway ring as it gets expensive in time and fuel. It would be great to see you at one of our Midlands monthly meetups Keep up the mapping - I find bike is the best method but not on icy roads!
