Good work. A while back, I noticed that PR’s roads were really bad (not aligned with imagery) from the TIGER import but was occupied with other tasks.

I look forward to see how it looks in the future!

Thanks! I use OSM for navigation so I really think this is needed.

How do we contribute to the project, other than by simply picking a place in PR and start editing? I did some tiger cleaning in the town of Arecibo just now, leaving the tiger:reviewed=no tag on the streets where I couldn’t tell if it’s correct or not; those should be visited by someone on the ground or local knowledge.

You also mention “USACE 2009-10 imagery”, how do we use that imagery layer?

Hey bdiscoe. I’ve updated the references and data sources section above with links. In particular I have yet to find the 2009-10 USACE imagery available as a web service for using it in JOSM, but the USACE 2006-07 is. I feel the same way about the “tiger:reviewed=no” tags been removed by people with local or ground knowledge. I also added more information at the bottom of the diary entry for explaining how I’ve been working on all this. Thanks for contributing.

You can load the 2010 Aerial Photography in JOSM by creating a TMS and pasting this link:{zoom}/{y}/{x} This aerial photo was contributed by the Escuela Graduada de Planificación - Universidad de Puerto Rico Recinto de Río Piedras. Refer here for more information regarding this dataset:

I always wondered how it ended up in ArcGIS Online, kudos to La Escuela Graduada de Planificación. I tested it in JOSM and iD, the appearance and performance is great. I’ll go check out the pdf to learn about usage. Thank you Ernesto!

La Escuela Graduada de Planificación, con la ayuda de RIKS de Rotterdam, crearon un sistema de apoyo a la toma de decisiones llamado Xplorah para la Junta de Planificación. Como parte de las labores de crear dicho sistema, se pobló un raster de usos (residencial, industrial, etc) del terreno a 50 - 100 metros de resolucion. Para poblar el raster, la EGP subcontrató unas imagenes aereas nuevas para el año 2010. Todo esto fue pagado por la JP.
