Mapping the Student City

Posted by Anxhelo Lushka on 27 November 2017 in English (English)

I have spent two or three days now and have mapped a large part of Student City using correct data provided by the Municipality of Tirana and applied as a background layer to make my job easier. I am pretty happy with the results so far, have added around 2500 buildings, many businesses based on pictures I took while biking and I intend to map at least 90% of that area part of Tirana.

After seeing a before and after comparision I just love the final results, you can notice how dense that part of the city is now even compared to the city centre (still a LOT of businesses missing from the map, but I'll make sure to add some more too in the upcoming days).

Nice work! Mapping buildings take a lot of time, but the resulting map is much better then before.

Nice work! Please take care of this: http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/234270352

landuse=residential, leisure=park and place=suburb all on one area doesn't seem appropriate.
