Some new footpaths are being constructed in a few areas around Nenagh town - also I've noticed a few planning permission notices up. I really must check what they are about and if they might mean I've some updating to do.
Finally got around to adding/renaming the motor factors near the Abbey Court Hotel in Nenagh to the map. Well, it was certainly about time!
Managed to add a missing back-road or two near Cloughjordan over the weekend. Rather happy about that!
There's a new roundabout / access road into the Fairgreen shopping centre from Barrack Street in Carlow - spotted it yesterday when going to Argos to get a new scratching post for lil' merlyn. Must add it at some stage!
I've recently added the new Scouts Hall car park (open since just before Christmas if I'm correct) to the Open Street Map coverage of Nenagh.
I've noticed some indication of new road signs going up for signing tertiary and unclassified roads branching off the R430 between Abbeyleix and Carlow. The posts are there - now they just need to bolt on the actual signs!
just spotted my article on openstreetmap in this week's tipptatler - http://issuu.com/derryo/docs/tipp_tatler_issue_137feb10/15
Not been feeling up to much today - added some detail in Carlow town and corrected some of the road layout towards the Benamore Business Estate to/from N7 bypass of Roscrea.
I've nothing to do with ibood.com except that I'm a happy customer of theirs after having bought a lenovo laptop off them a year or so ago.
Thought I'd mention, for one day only [as it always is with iBood], they are selling a i-gotU GT-120 USB GPS Receiver Travel Logger for 40 euro - details at http://www.ibood.com/ie/en/product_specs.php.
Pertinent Details are:
Built-in SiRF StarIII low-power chipset
Programmable log interval: 1 sec - 60 minutes
Average acquisition time for cold start: < 60 sec., warm start: < 38 sec.
it might be the one piece of hardware you need to kickstart a more active approach to do openstreetmap mapping ;-)
I've traced some estates in Nenagh which I tracked recently - scary to realise how many are incomplete.
I'll upload the actual .gpx some time soon - honest!
Some of you may be aware that I have recently moved home from Dublin to Nenagh in County Tipperary. I'm going to use my daily commute in to the Limerick office (until I get broadband at home at which stage I'll WFH most of the time) to map the various routes betwixt and between.
Today I did a quick map/data-gathering of Plassey Village opposite University Limerick - footpaths not included as I was in the car at the time.
