Mapping Cary’s Downtown Park

First Contribution

This was my first attempt at trying to map out a public park from the original CAD drawings attempting to draw out this map by hand using JOSM. If there’s a way that I could trace polygons from QGIS and be able to save them, I’ll probably end up trying to go that route.

What I Learned

  1. AutoCAD files aren’t always geocoded
  2. GeoParquet files are your friend
  3. Geodatabases are your best friend
  4. Don’t trust Aerial Imagery, field surveys
Location: Cary, Wake County, North Carolina, United States
