Everyone was right. This is way to addicting! I'm not sure if I was just looking for a hobby or if I feel I am part of something bigger then the things I normally get to do. Whatever it is I can really get use to this...if it does not drive me crazy first. =)
I'm amazed to see how much needs to be done in my area (Northern Colorado) yet alone everywhere else. I just want to fix all of it now! But wait, there are still things to learn and I keep finding new ways to tag things and just now understanding the remarkable detailed nature of what the editor can accomplish. Some of the tiger information looks very cluttering but I am not sure quite yet what can be trimmed and what is really usefully to leave. So needless to say I have been reluctant to make changes to things other then what I am certain of at this point. Any help here would be appreciated as I am still wondering around the wiki pages.
Well, I've updated a ton of roads (priorities and incorrect tiger mappings) in the Fort Collins, Co. maps. Please feel free to look over these and tell me if the primary/secondary road labels I have been updating are up to par with standards. I'm slightly torn on whether to classify major city streets as secondary, or if they should be something less. I think all highways, regardless of state or US, should be primary. So hence my decision for labeling major city streets as secondary. Anyways...
This all has been driven from wanting maps in my Android "MapDroyd" program to render closer to how the web version of OSM, but maybe that is something I should take up with the developer. But if I am correct with my road labeling, that is not needed and mt mobile app will do.
What Android app is everyone else using? I need one that is offline as I will be hiking/camping this summer with no cell reception.
