North of the Galtee Mountains

Posted by mapryan on 30 August 2008 in English (English)

Added loads of new roads in the area around Galbally, which is just north of the Galtee Mountains.

Lots of the local main roads are already mapped, but everything else seems to be missing. Sadly, I'm only around for 2 days, and I'm going home tomorrow. However, I'll be back at Christmas and will do more if it's still the same.

Driving around collecting GPS traces has made an interesting change from updating Openstreetmap in London. After all, most roads there are done and it's all detail now (street names, one ways, etc). Over here, it's like a big blank canvas.

Mind you, the amount of times I headed up a side road following a road, only having to do a u-turn as I find myself in someone's yard. (Invariably, 3 or 4 men will be huddled over an car's engine, and all give me a very distrusting look as I turned the car round in front of them). On the plus side, I only once found myself in a dead end that I had to reverse out of.
