OpenStreetMap

It's a whole (unmapped) wide world out there!

Are you bored of looking at your neighbourhood in OSM, trying to find the last unmapped tree, the last sidewalk still left to be drawn? Are you tired of trying to come up with even more complex relations so that landuse near your town is perfectly represented with multipolygons? Are you getting cross-eyed with the galaxy of POIs in your nearest city centre?

Wouldn't you prefer the thrill of being the first person to put entire villages and towns on the map? Discovering hundreds of kilometers of new roads, never before touched by OSM? Or relaxingly drawing completely rivers and canals, shooting straight across open plains?

If only the frontier was still open. If only there was such a place of vast possibilities. If only there was somewhere where life, pardon me, mapping, was still simple, honest, and true. Well, fear not! Such a place does exist. Come join us over at WikiProject_Iraq and talk-iq and claim your place among the pioneers.

Just look what you can do. No features visible on these images are drawn AT ALL:

Good way to help people find the white spots.
