Hey, just checked my additions to OpenStreetMap and they are in. Have you checked and corrected your neighborhood?
I am gobsmacked - we live in the sticks and everything is correct - high level of detail showing even the same private roads nearby. Brilliant.
Too quick typing, too slow reading - for "same" read "small"! Sorry.
Really out of date for where I live, alas—as in whole roads missing (and these aren‘t new roads either, we’re talking 80 years plus!)
Interesting idea though.
Same for me ... not useable. Just one road, all others are missing ;-)
All checked and everything is correct :-)
Ah, did you get hooked on it too. It happened to me two weeks ago:-) I think the spiegel.de article did it.
Oh come on guys, they claim 40% coverage for Germany. I'd say that's impressive for just running around with your gps and ok, redrawing yahoo's areal pictures.
The US has better coverage, because they imported some ?Tiger? data. As I understand all geo data of the US has to be public domain, since is was collected on public money.
Could one make use of the iPhone's A-GPS to create or complete these maps? I'm still looking for excuses to get one... ;-)
Ben and Frank,
it's everybody's task to complete the maps in his neighborhood. It's easy and actually quite some fun. You need a GPS which can write a track. Almost all GPS handheld devices can do that. I just used a Nokia phone with Sports Tracker. You upload the track to the site and then draw the streets on your track.
Waiting for a HTC Touch Diamond, then I'll get trackin'...(if technology permits)
Ah OK, I thought the street maps themselves would be complete, and that we just had to add the other data. Seems weird given the mount of mapping data out there already.
OpenStreetMap is the "Wikipedia of maps". Why have Wikipedia when there are so many other established encyclopedias out there? Same goes for OpenStreetMap.
Don't need to check my neighborhood, Karlsruhe is ready for 99,5% :)
Wir (die aktiven Mapper) überlegen uns jetzt, was man noch machen könnte, ausser die fehlende Umgebung zu mappen.
