Just a quick reminder for UK (or anyone else of course) mappers of the excellent ITO - OSM Analysis Map, activity seems to have tailed off a little bit recently with what seems like only me and a few others spending time adding missing UK roads in.
The recent licence change has removed around 3000 non ODbL compliant roads (with some areas to be run again, so this is sure to increase) according to the latest ITO update. Lets make a big push to get them all added back in!
Currents stats are:
- Roads Missing from OSM (major) 91,799
- Roads Missing from OSM (minor) 3,971
- UK Percentage Complete 89.20%
- Missing change last day 3,038
- Missing change last week 2,168
- Missing change last month -5,059
For anyone that doesn't know the ITO Analysis Map compares UK roads to the OS Locator database from Ordnance Survey, which then can be shown as a layer in JOSM or Potlatch so missing roads can easily be added in. Wiki Page
[Update] See map link for current redaction bot mess in Salford/Manchester.
[Update (again)] To address controversy in the comments. Obviously this kind of data should be used with caution! Don't destroy anyone else's work or rename streets that have been previously surveyed. My main reason for making this post was to highlight how ITO could be used post-redaction bot to identify missing streets etc. Ground surveys are always preferable. Sorry for any confusion.
