Hello Thailand Community,
Today I am sharing a new challenge Missing Access Tag that might interest editors and mappers of certain use cases and application. The challenge was analyzed mainly on gated community areas in Bangkok where access=private may be required to be tagged. A comparison analysis of OSM and TomTom data was conducted on residential areas where accessibility may be restricted.
In order to help you categorize/differentiate gated communities from open ones, here is an information tips that you might find helpful, In aerial imagery, you will see similar pattern of house roofs, a guard house at village entrance/exit which mostly found in gated community areas and already been captured in OSM map as gates or moveable barriers.
For local users who can read Thai, street names can also help you to identify residential areas too. (This case it is ‘พฤกษ์ลดา xx’)
While the challenge is open, it is highly recommended, if not mandatory, to have local knowledge.
