Was referred here by AkuAnakTimur. I am Afeez and I am doing marketplace/logistics business. Check it out:https://motion.com.my. I am using OSM extensively so I would like to contribute back to OSM. Of course, these contributions are not purely altruistic as we do get financial benefits in return as better OSM data would allow us to be more efficient.
I am going to list things what I have been thinking:
We can add some data but there is no ‘method’ per se. How can I train my staffs, dedicated just to make the data more molek?
For toll data, what is the best way to add this info as it would be great to combine routing + toll cost?
On the road condition, surface area, climb/altitude: How can we add these data, we have lots of GPS tracks data but honestly we do not have proper way to upload it back. Our data covers the whole peninsular Malaysia, not just in the cities but also in the rural areas where there is no cellular connection!
What other qualitatives data/parameters that you guys would like to see? Not only that we have GPS tracks but we have LIDAR & camera enabled fleet to supplement our GPS data. For now, we are using it for HD mapping but we would love to give back to OSM in any way.
Appreciate it if the rest of team can assist us!
