State Highways in Kerala

Posted by naveenpf on 23 February 2016 in English.

Opendata #OSM Feels so happy… we have almost done with mapping State Highways in Kerala. Lot of learning how our PWD department calculates the length of the Road. Got to know how much State Highway is on paper and how much is actually present. This effort started 20 January 2011‎, almost 5 years. Thanks a ton Manu Varkey for joining SH mapping.

Why it started ? When creating an article in Wikipedia “List of State Highways in Kerala” we wanted map to show up the State Highway. We have tried contacting Kerala PWD. That effort was fruit less.
