Three Days on the Road = About 30K Images

Posted by apm-wa on 18 February 2019 in English (English)

Haven’t finished uploading the images from the last trip and this weekend collected about 30,000 more on a three-day excursion to Turkmenbashy via Balkanabat to open our winter film showings (“Black Panther”, “Home”, and “Princess and the Frog”) in those cities. Updated the maps for Balkanabat and Jebel a bit, cleaned up the M37 highway, deleted a demolished gas station, and generally cleaned up the map along that highway in a few places. Ashgabat to Turkmenbashy is about 600 kilometers one way, so we did ok on data collection.

The previous weekend Ann and I visited Gokdepe and identified two hospitals plus explored some residential developments under construction. Lots of updates!

I always appreciate your diary entries. Really cool to see how perhaps the most accurate and up to date map of Turkmenistan is being developed.

Thanks for the kind words. This is a target-rich environment–so much data that needs to be collected, and as long as I’m making a trip as part of the job, I may as well collect information useful not only to me but to other mappers.
