The "Operation Green"

Posted by Legitimater on 21 December 2022 in English (English). Last updated on 23 December 2022.

I’ve been mapping OpenStreetMap for approximately 9 months now, and for the 128 edits I’ve done (which 50% of it is mapping trees and farmland), I’m proud to introduce to you all my new operation.

The “Operation Green”. Which involve of me mapping farmland, trees, to make the map look more “greener” (more info here)


  1. Mapping trees/farmlands, and other related nature features (Natural wood, etc.) will be now separated from other changesets
  2. A hashtag #OperationGreen will be now displayed on the comments in each changesets.

If someone see this diary entry, and you decide to do it also to make the map more greener as well, feel free! (P.S., Put the hashtag #OperationGreen on the changesets so I can know it came from me.

Nice! I agree that adding things like trees and farmland can make the map look a lot better. (And more useful, both at high and low zooms.) For about a year I’ve been adding lots of natural=wood and natural=scrub areas to the forested places in my area. Check it out!

I see in your changesets that you have done a lot of “Greening”, especially the contributions of that size! I applaud you for that 👏🏻

Don’t Forget also to add some buildings and houses to add more details to our map!
