Here is my heatmap And my contribution profile

Landscape mapping

I love trail-running (with a map at hand) and thus try to improve the osm mostly in regard of path network and terrain representation.

Topics: mostly natural tags (fell, scree, bare_rock, cliff, ridge, peak, saddle, heath, shingle, scrub)

Subtopics: wild protection areas, marked trails, bus stops

?? Cliff is a line feature, bare_rock is area but does not say anything about steepness. I thus miss an area symbol to represent steep areas, which would correspond to the traditional Swiss Hatchure.

?? Do the marked trails really have to be mapped as routes between two nodes? The hiking trail network is as dense that you regularly have a single path between two nodes.

-> Here is my preliminary result (OSM & DEM Kt.GR ->QGIS for Symbology) Trailrunningmap Klosters

Orienteering maps

The orienteering community has several projects related to osm.

  • MapAnt.no features an osm path overlay

  • MapAnt.es includes the OSM path network.

  • oomap.co.uk is fully based on osm (own tiles)

  • o-map.ch Combines Mapbox vector tiles with live rendering (??) of osm data
