Topographic Map

Posted by Aash on 30 August 2020 in English (English)


I have made lines on JOSM to show the elevation of my country Aden, it is very detailed and realistic but I don't really know the process on how I can upload it into the topographic map, does anybody know a way?

Location: 21.770, 31.117

Save your contour layer (on your computer - again, please, do NOT upload contour files to the OGF database!) as a .OSM file. Compress the file ("zip" or some other utility). 5. Email your compressed .OSM file to, with a subject reading "Contour file for possible upload". 6. Wait for someone on the admin team to take a look at your file and, if it is free from major errors, it will probably be uploaded to the Topo Layer on OGF. This may take quite a bit of time - there are some programs that need to be run, and everyone is sometimes busy with other things. Give at least a week. If there are problems with your file, someone will let you know.
