I have undertaken a new endeavor, mapping Rock County. I am beginning with Hills and I will keep updating this diary as I add more.

Location: Downtown Hills, Hills, Rock County, Minnesota, United States of America

Heh - that's a beautiful little island of mapped-ness you've created there so far.

Keep up the good work.

Yes, looks very good. I have been doing similar landuse coverage west of Fargo as a test experiment in how the result looks and was happy with the results. Good to see someone on the other side of the line doing similar work.

Keep up the good work. Bit by bit the landuse in the midwest is being done, I think it will be really interesting when the coverage gets more complete.

By the way, you should check out JOSM and the 'building tools' plugin for tracing buildings. It is much less work to trace them, and produces a better result since the corners are nice 90 degree angles. Definitely worth taking the time to learn if you plan to do much building mapping. There are some good videos on the wiki about how to use it effectively.
