Ottwiz's forest mapping updates

For the exact same reason as in Woodland and Forest Mapping updates (Slack → OSM Community Forum) I create here my own topic, where I sometimes post updates about the progress of mapping woodland.

I won’t repost things though here, but I’ll upload a few screenshots from the past 3 years to show how things got progressed. However, I’ll upload them as .jpg files, so they won’t drain your cellular if you’re watching it from such net access.

First project: Marshall County, WV between July 2020-January 2021.
Coshocton County, Ohio from January 2021 until September 2021
[User:Ottwiz/ottwiz-mapping-50-states - OpenStreetMap Wiki](https://Mapping 50 states) a side project for summer 2021.
Raleigh County, WV and its surroundings (between December 2020-December 2021)

Current project:
Ottwiz mapping West Virginia Ongoing since October 2021 including the Raleigh County project. Well, it seems it takes 1 county / month to do, I can’t do faster due to my assignments and personal life.


FYI, I forgot to put the copyright on the pictures as “© OpenStreetMap contributors”, but if you hover over the pictures, you’ll see it.

Btw Hawaii will be updated now & then by me and maplemoths.

I didn’t map Alaska much (only around Skagway), so probably the next screenshot won’t be as excidting as the previous ones.

But these are for future references how things are going on.


One checkerboard square, forest plot, neighborhood, downtown, parking lot, woodland, county park, county, “treed farmland,” timberland area, state forest, school campus…at a time, ladies and gentlemen. This is how we build our map.

I nod my head.


Behind the scenes, I have a Simple Tasking Manager project set up so I can track my progress and I can set up that where should I map, but since I have a lot of work to do and uni assignments, sometimes it takes 2 or 3(or more) days to complete a square.
