Mapper's Challenge #20 — May 2018 — It's All in the Details

Posted by Alessa on 10 May 2018 in Maltese (Malti)

Hello, everyone!

Sorry for being a couple days late with this month's challenge. Our monthly challenge for May is something simple for mappers of all levels and can be done on your coffee break! I hope you'll take a few minutes and pull together something to share and show off to the community.

Your task will be to find a small area and map it in extreme detail. The level of complexity and size will be up to you, but try to keep it under two square kilometers in the interests of being hyper-detailed. If you are a seasoned user, this gives you the chance to show off; it's also designed to be a practice run for all level of mappers to solicit feedback and improve skills. We all can better, right?

I'm not sure how many new (or even old) users are aware of the OSM wiki, which houses a wealth of resources related to key and tag lists. Here are a few lists that might be of interest for this task:

Obviously there is more to build than mere buildings or roads. Construct a park, or a historical site! Maybe work with water more, like last month's challenge. Did you do a railway station two months ago? Maybe it's time to spruce up the station and its environs. The options are up to you.

As you complete your new work, share it below or in the forum thread. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask a friend! As always, I'll do my best to provide feedback where I can.

Now, let's get mapping! Good luck, everyone!

I made this entry: http://opengeofiction.net/#map=18/-24.86530/26.22610 It's a new railway station for the upcoming city of Albert that I am working on. I'm not sure if it even that good of a railway station, but I decided that it would be good.
