Housenumbers added to Freiburg-Betzenhausen

Posted by Marcus Wolschon on 20 March 2009 in English (English)

Added lots of housenumbers to the backyards
of Freiburg-Betzenhausen.

You would neber guess how many second and third -row houses
and house-numbers with added letters and footways connecting
backyards are there.

Very good routing in Traveling Salesman now. You can visit
your grandma in the third row of houses for the elderly
across the playground and be directed through the maze of houses
to the correct door.

Traveling Salesman

Posted by Marcus Wolschon on 24 October 2007 in English (English)

Traveling Salesman
my routing and navigation -program
is getting better every day.

Finally with the first beta it contains
all the required features for some
first tests-drives. It did perform well.

The UI still needs some polish and
the driving-instructions are very basic
but it starts to fulfill it's purpose.

Suhl Germany

Posted by Marcus Wolschon on 7 September 2007 in English (English)

There is some work to be done in Suhl.
The city pretty much was nonexistent in OSM.

I am here for business a few days and
just uploaded some GPS-traces that need ways and street-names.
I will try to keep the gps with me in the city and capture
street-names when shopping later today but that will not cover much of
the city.

state of northeast-swizerland

Posted by Marcus Wolschon on 30 August 2007 in English (English)

It seems that some roads are not very acurately mapped
in this area. Most are fine but some seem to come
of a map instead of a GPS. A few points I had to move
to match the (very exact and many) GPS-coordinates.

The tagging is fine but there are a lot of segments
with no way and ways with no name here.
