just another day mapping away...

Posted by SekeRob on 20 March 2021 in English.

After doing this intensely for 8 months, constant COVID-19 lockup, it’s depressing how poor the quality, but foremost the tag completeness is. At times it’s like boxcars. There’s many who never seem to follow up on their issues left behind, unconnected ways, routers, they don’t understand 2 end nodes 1 meter apart… there’s no way for them to go from one to the other. We plod on though and keep witteling away at it. Both the navigators I use are OSM data based so whatever I can resolve along the ways I traverse, helps me plotting the next long distance cycle tours in particular… is it up or down, the angle, what quality is the surface, yes here in Abruzzo it’s not a given, many cracks and potholes… cost me 2 wheel rims already so recently switched to 2.5 inch wide rubber wheeled bike… much more conformable. Keep going.
