East Rock Park

Posted by John Goldin on 8 April 2013 in English (English)

My first efforts with OSM has been to map footpaths in East Rock Park in New Haven, CT. For the past several months when I walk the park I make a trace with the Garmin GPSMAP 62. I have been accumulating the traces in a single GPX file.

I have used mkgmap to make an img file which I can download to my Garming GPS. Currently I am trying to learn how to use TYP and styles to make a better walking image on my Garmin.

I have also been adjusting local streets based on Bing imagery.

Welcome to OSM. One thing to watch is that although Bing is better than the streets imported from TIGER that haven’t been tidied up in much of the US, the images are sometimes offset and I like to have GPS tracks displayed in the editor so I can check how accurate they are.
