Finishing up Stavanger, Norway about 2 months ago

Hey Bro!

Just imported some 158k address nodes in the region (Rogaland ) including Stavanger. This revealed loads of streets with missing and wrong names that I could now correct. Even if the data was sourced recently, there are streets that have changed names and corresponding houses with changed numbers since then. Most buildings are missing and I keep finding footways and paths hidden away between houses and so on. New constuctions keep popping up continously, of course.

How can one ever declare a city to be complete? I'd say never...

These are known issues with the Tiger import. But thanks for all the fixups!

Airport Runway Names almost 3 years ago

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Runway on how runways are named.
So if you have some free imagery of the the south one, you can measure the name with a anglefinder :-)

Restrictions and Routing almost 3 years ago

There are a few things that should be fixed here.
The on-ramp to B27 northbound should perhaps be split, like the one on the other side.
The on-ramp to B27 southbound has a broken turn restriction. The via-node is not the node between the from and to. It also has two ways with the to-role. Also, because the to-road is split and oneway, there is no need for the restriction in the first place.

There seems to be turning-lanes on the B84 that should be mapped individually.
The B84 bridge should also possibly be split, as it has a wide 'no crossing'-zone down the middle. This will also help mapping the turn-lanes.

B27 seems to have been split using a splitting tool (parallel ways). But one or more sections of the original way has been left in place. So now the road is triple...

best regards

Start (the latest stable version of) JOSM, click the link and watch magic happen.
Also worth enabling the Bing WMS layer :-)

Requirment over 3 years ago

Have a look through the first two links on the left (Help Centre and Documentation).
It could help writing a bit more about what you have to work with (addresses in a file? xml online?) and what you need (a mud-map on your web page? Visible on the main map?) etc.
