Uppdateringar i södra Göteborg

Posted by johnrobot on 13 March 2010 in Swedish (Svenska)

Jag upptäckte häromdagen att någon god människa håller på och lägger många, många adresser och markanvändning i Askim, södra Göteborg. Vem är denna snälla person?

Location: Askim, Askim-Frölunda-Högsbo, Göteborg, Göteborgs kommun, Västra Götalands län, Götaland, Sverige

Bujumbura - Burundi

Posted by johnrobot on 6 January 2009 in English (English)

I have started mapping Bujumbura, the capital of Burundi. It only had a few streets when starting, so there is a lot to do there. Fortunately, the Yahoo imagery covers the region.

Location: Kigobe, Bujumbura, Bujumbura Mairie, Burundi

I have started mapping house numbers as well now. They seem to render in OSMA and it is definitely a step in the right direction.

Swedish west coast 10

Posted by johnrobot on 24 November 2008 in English (English)

More or less every single road in the northern archipelago of Gothenburg is now mapped. This includes Rörö, Hyppeln, Källö-Knippla, Björkö, Öckerö, Hälsö, Grötö, Hönö and Fotö.

Good news. "All" of the roads on the Onsala peninsula, south of Gothenburg, Sweden, are now mapped. It took some time, but there it is. Now, the names have to be added.

The last few days, I have been adding a lot of data for the peninsula of Onsala, south of Gothenburg, Sweden. Two more weeks and virtually all of the road network will be there.

I have added quite a lot of data for the Eastern parts of Gothenburg, for example Örgryte, Skatås, Munkebäck, Redbergslid and Gårda. Soon I would almost trust the map enough to navigate with it.

Location: Överås, Örgryte-Härlanda, Gothenburg, Göteborg, Västra Götalands län, Götaland, Sweden

Swedish west coast 6

Posted by johnrobot on 25 August 2008 in English (English)

I have done quite a lot of mapping around Svartedalen, north of Gothenburg, and Landvetter. It´s starting to appear on Osmarender, but it´ll take me another week or so to digitize most of the road network.

Location: Lurås, Södra Röd, Stenungsund, Västra Götalands län, Götaland, Sweden

A few communities along the Swedish west coast are nearing completion: Kullavik, Billdal, Hovås and Askim. Most of the street names are still missing, though. I am going to polish these areas a bit more and then continue going south from Kullavik towards Onsala.

Location: Billdal, Askim-Frölunda-Högsbo, Skintebo, Göteborg, Västra Götalands län, Götaland, Sweden

Swedish west coast 3

Posted by johnrobot on 23 July 2008 in English (English)

A few days ago, I started mapping Kullavik, a community south of Gothenburg. It was almost totally unmapped, something that has changed a lot the last few days. I am going to finish Kullavik and continue up north, mapping Billdal, Hovås, Askim and up to Gothenburg.

Location: Kullavik, Snipen, Kungsbacka, Hallands län, Götaland, Sweden

Ah, a lot of improvements have taken place the last few days. A few minutes ago, I finished the shoreline of Hönö. That was a tough one.

Posted by johnrobot on 19 May 2008 in English (English)

I have been imporving the coast line/islands along the coast recently. Some of it already looks quite nice, but as always, there are tons of work left.

Swedish west coast

Posted by johnrobot on 6 May 2008 in English (English)

During the past few weeks, I have updated the coast line along the Swedish west coast, from Amundön (just south of Gothenburg) to Ölmanäs (on the east side of the Onsala peninsula). It looks quite a lot better now. I have updated some of the islands as well, but there is still quite a few of them to improve.

Location: N 952, Bröndome, Kungsbacka, Hallands län, Götaland, Sweden

Swedish lakes 9

Posted by johnrobot on 13 April 2008 in English (English)

I will run out of fresh lakes (in the western part of Sweden) to map in a few weeks, as most of them are mapped by now. Almost all of the ones left are partly covered by clouds, which makes them hard to map correctly. More/renewed Yahoo imagery would really help.

Location: Landvettervägen, Öjersjö, Partille, Västra Götalands län, Götaland, 43350, Sweden

Swedish lakes 8

Posted by johnrobot on 8 April 2008 in English (English)

Ah, more or less every single lake on the Onsala peninsula is now mapped. But wait, the coastline doesn´t look too impressive! Well, I guess I´d better start working on that one as well.

Location: Lunnavägen, Lunnaberg, Kungsbacka, Hallands län, Götaland, 43937, Sweden

Swedish lakes 7

Posted by johnrobot on 3 April 2008 in English (English)

Ha, quite a few new lakes have been rendered. This keeps getting better. I hope to finish this project before June.

It´s impressive to see all the new lakes render in western Sweden. I just finished the largest one so far, hope to see it in the map quite soon.

Even more lakes rendered now, this is looking better all the time. I actually think that my goal to map all of the lakes in the hires region is possible.

Location: Klåddegärdesvägen, Lindås, Härryda, Västra Götalands län, Götaland, Sweden

Posted by johnrobot on 19 March 2008 in English (English)

Wow, the new lakes have been rendered. It looks very promising, but there is still much work to be done.

Posted by johnrobot on 17 March 2008 in English (English)

The number of mapped lakes keeps on growing. This will really look great in a month or two.
