Rural Colorado

Posted by Mark Newnham on 7 July 2013 in English (English)

As part of the East Peak fire area update, I’ve been drifting off into rural Colorado, firstly, Archeluta, and then Branson. After completing Branson and checking with G***le to see how good theirs is, seems they are using the unmodified Tiger data for their maps, and that there is a way that OSM can be better in rural areas. When are they going to send there Priuses down dirt tracks to map out these places?

I cannot thank you enough Mark! I would not have ‘down-graded’ the need for mappers without your amazing efforts in the area. Not a small component of why I started the call for remote mapping is that OSM can/will be able to provide at minimum a better basemap for these fire areas.

Keep up the great work, and Happy Mapping! =Russ
