¿Do you have a GPS avaible?

As you do not have areal images in your regions, you will have to use the old GPS methods (I’ve used that too, but it’s a while ago).

You go out with a GPS that’s able to save a track log, on smartphones, there are usually track log apps you can install (like osmtracker for Android).

When you come home, you upload the GPX track to OpenStreetMap (see here: ) and you can start editing.

You should see a blue line where your GPS tracked you. If you remember where you walked, you can draw streets over the blue line, and give them the right names etc.

To get a better explanation, look at the beginners guide:
