Hello与你好

Posted by whison on 9 October 2012 in Chinese (China) (‪中文(中国大陆)‬)

Newbie to be here, I like cycle, how could I do more? I cycle outside Shanghai several times a year, and my iPhone can record the GPS, is there any value in it?

Location: 杨浦区, 五角场街道, 杨浦区, 上海市, 中华人民共和国

Definitely value. Use a GPS tracking app, then upload your tracks to openstreetmap.org. Then use an OpenStreetMap editor to trace over the tracks and draw in any roads or trails that are missing.

Definately export your tracks to GPX, and upload them to OpenStreetMap: http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/whison/traces

But the most important thing is to remember interesting stuff while you drive by: * how is this street called, * there is a pub at that corner * A bakery over there * ...

And when you get home, you can place those on the map.

And the best way to remember those details is to take a photo :) See also http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Beginners'_guide
