Mapping Cary’s Downtown Park
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
- AutoCAD files aren’t always geocoded
- GeoParquet files are your friend
- Geodatabases are your best friend
- Don’t trust Aerial Imagery, field surveys
