My edits in Bergen County, New Jersey

Posted by ComBlOp on 7 September 2018 in English (English)

I started mapping less than two months ago, with intent to improve the map where I live, Bergen County. I started with Paramus, as it is 10.5 sq mi (2nd largest by area after Mahwah) and I'm now done. Basically every building, residential areas, parking lots, paths... I've mapped a lot. I took a little break from Paramus to do the tiny Rockleigh borough, but then returned back to Paramus.

Nothing felt better than mapping the area around East Brook Middle School. After the terrible events of May 17, I could not be anything but satisfied after editing the area around it.

I'm very happy with my edits and #24 for US edits on HDYC. That's way better than I expected, honestly.

Next is Alpine, and I'm excited to map Alpine. Most of my changes have so far been, and will be buildings, as those are barely marked throughout Bergen County.

I would love to see Bergen County as one of the best openly-mapped areas in the world one day.

The location this post was given is of Paramus.

I would love to see Bergen County as one of the best openly-mapped areas in the world one day. You'd have to compete with Chapel Hill, North Carolina to achieve that. :)

Yes, Chapel Hill is incredible. There’s also Lesotho and Baltimore County, MD. I obviously can’t do that great alone, and I’m not trying to compete. I’m just trying my best.

By the way, Chapel Hill and UNC blew my mind! Thanks for bringing that up.
