Hi, I realize this is an old thread, but I am new to OSM and was wondering if there is still any interest in helping me map India.


First of all, I apologize for my mistakes. I would like to upgrading the map. Mostly I draw missing roads and residental areas. My problem is I do not know the road types. I check others work but it is not uniform. road vs tertiary vs unclassified vs track etc. So someday somebody will have to set the road types.
Best regards

Hi All,

I have 3 years on OSM mapping in the JOSM tool currently working in India my main motto is to improve OSM in India.

I am from Assam and I will update the map as much as I can.



I wanted to collect information on if there is a set mapping community in India especially in the regions of Uttarakhand, Sikkim, Darjeeling and Himachal Pradesh. I am writing a research proposal in which one of the topics is to increase OSM awareness. Before I start working on this, I would like to know if there is existing format and work going on.

Thank you.
