Back in July 2022, I started mapping schools in Chandigarh. Now that I’m thinking, it wasn’t mapping schools (Oberaffe had already marked areas and added amenity=school tags a decade earlier) but adding names and a bunch of other information tags to those. It was a fun little activity which lead, in my estimate, touching of all schools (and a bunch of colleges as well), which numbered ~200 in Chandigarh and periphery. Areas where I had issues adding data have been populated with fixme tags for in area mappers to help out. Most of the data has flowed to downstream applications like OSMand and Organic maps, which look nice and full now, just like all the yellow areas on standard map.

On to the next adventure, to mark schools (and colleges) in Panchkula; Chandigarh’s next door neighbor.
