Maybe we could also have a “real” mapping party, so we could add GPS tracks to help align BING imagery with the real world, and fill some features which aren’t visible in BING.
e.g. footways in parks, synagogues, shops, etc.
I’m sure we could benefit from such a meeting.
How about the week of 20-24/Feb?
Who’s free when?
I like the idea!
So we can first map all the visible ways from bing and then have a real party to fill in at least the street names. From my experience, having a printed map of untagged ways on spot (I can produce these easily with e.g. Maperitive, or WalkingPapers) helps a lot.
As to the location, Ashdod is also a good candidate, actually it might be a bit easier to get there.
So I have started to map Ashdod already. Everybody is welcome to help.
Mainly I’m focused to map the big territary streets in both oneways correctly. The most of the roads are very clear visible and can be mapped easy with the help of Bing.
