Bad Weather = Bad Imagery

Posted by apm-wa on 4 March 2018 in English (English)

March 1-2 I traveled to Yoloten and Mary, and passed through Tejen, and tried to collect ground-level Mapillary imagery…during and after a rain storm (unusual in arid Turkmenistan, but not unknown in winter). I must apologize for the poor quality imagery. It was just too dark and gloomy. I collected some useful data and have added information to the maps of Yoloten, Mary, and Tejen (including Tejen’s only hotel, which charges 6 manat or $1.71 per night). Nonetheless some of the imagery is less than marginal. Sorry! At least I added some street names to these towns, as well as some major POIs.

Today Ann and I cruised the former vilage of Gokje, now officially a neighborhood of Ashgabat since it was annexed, and collected street names, POIs, and fresh GPS traces for streets that have been created in the past year or so. Some streets had absolutely no signage at all. Not sure how we’ll find the names for them.

Location: Ýolöten, Mary Region, Turkmenistan

For those without the bookmarklet =

Do not exagerate. Those pictures are not too bad and are very appreciated.

You are too kind, Philippe. I’m hoping for better (sunnier) weather on my next outings.
