Level of detail wanted ?

Thinking about adding to the map and wondered how much detail is needed and can you have too much data ?. I’m thinking more of field fences etc. What is the minimum size of an object to map <10 square meters too small ?


As much or as little as you’d like!

OSM has generally worked on the basis of “gradual improvement”. If there’s no data in an area, then add “the most important” stuff first (and what that will be will vary from person to person). As time goes on, more detail gets added.

The only slight caveat is that you’re limited by the accuracy of the available sources, whether that’s aerial imagery, your own or other people’s GPS traces, or something else.

Many thanks, good to know. accuracy is the single most important thing for me.
