Progress and stagnation in Great Britain road data almost 3 years ago

@chilly: Fair point. When I compared OSM with OS Locator data, I find most roads (except small courts) already in OSM, but the names are missing. For navigation missing road names can be a problem thou.

Great Briain completely mapped in less than a year? almost 3 years ago

@Vclaw
I don't know. I have the feeling that some of the areas are rather just traced, seeing the sudden progress of some districts. It's true that OS data has errors, but as long as people do not start to rename streets according to the OS data it is fine. Better to have a misspelled street names than none. Second and third node edits by locals will clear eventual mistakes.

@LivingWithDragons
I agree that it would be better to gather the local community to make it more sustainable for the future. On the other hand, it won't keep people from tracing satellite imagery and fill in names from the OS Data. This has lead to lot's of improvements and can lead to great coverage (e.g. Haiti). Looking at the Gb district data, some are shockingly sparsely mapped.Places like Hastings, City of Plymouth and so on are just at the 50% mark, which is very bad for a populated place.

Spam zu neuer Lizenz about 3 years ago

i received an email like this recently and i found it very helpful. i knew about the license change, but i did not know that i had to agree to it somewhere. so if nobody had informed me, i would have never agreed to it. no reason to be upset about it, nobody puts you under pressure. it is only for your information

there is also lots to draw from Bing Imagery. I drew some roads in in the area, but I don't know any of the names. Have a go.
