Getting to know Openstreetmap

Posted by Siddharth Sajit on 20 June 2016 in English (English).

This is the first time using the openstreetmap system and I didn’t know how useful and interesting it is at the same time. The fact is that our team used the openstreetmap facility and started the project ‘GIS’ or Geographical Information System as a part of NATIONAL SERVICE SCHEME (NSS) and did its first mapping of our college ‘Vidya Academy of Science and Technology, Thalakottukara’.

It is wonderful how technology can be used to in various ways to fulfill our needs. The task was thought to be difficult at first but, as we proceeded it wasn’t difficult as predicted. With teamwork and hard work we developed our college map easily.

The team was divided into sub-groups and given different parts of the college. The collected data and information was edited on to the maps separately and the result, detailed map of college.

With this success we are hoping to map the adopted village of our NSS unit VELUR.

Location: Ward XV, Velur, Kunnamkulam, Thrissur district, Kerala, 680 501, India

You might want to look on the wiki for how to tag trees.
