GPS Traces for Regina

Posted by gecho111 on 3 July 2015 in English (English).

I uploaded all the GPS traces I collected while systematically biking every road in Regina last year. It should be useful for newer areas until the satellite imagery gets a refresh.

Roads added after mid-July 2014 won’t have traces uploaded. I have traces for most of the new ones as I periodically bike through the areas under construction. But its a matter of figuring out which day I biked those roads. Its usually easier to just go back and ride them again.

Cool. Great mapping. Have you ever tired Strava Slide? http://labs.strava.com/routing-errors/#10000000/15/-104.62036/50.45948

or using Mapillary on your bike?

Cheers

I tried slide a few times, but I primarily use JOSM to edit. For some mountain bike trails I did use the Strava heatmap layer in JOSM to add trails that were obscured by trees.

I’d definitely like to try doing some stuff with Mapillary. One of the biggest areas of work left locally is adding POIs for businesses. Making image sequences of the main commercial areas would make that task easier.

and now with the mapillary JOSM plugin it`s much easier then it was 6 months ago when i was making photos and trying to add the info on the map, using josm
