British Columbia - Greater Vancouver

I’m a novice user, just stopping in to say hello.

Is there anything special I need to know about mapping in Canada vs Europe? Are the tags essentially the same?


Welcome to OSM.

Have a look at the Canadian mailing list for a robust discussion with other mappers in / interested in Canada.

The tags are essentially the same. Canada may have more sport=curling and amenity=cafe;name=“Tim Hortons” but otherwise tags are the same.
