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:
- amenity (everything from shelters, to bicycle racks, to waste baskets)
- leisure (includes playgrounds, boat slipways, and even picnic tables)
- tourism (artwork, museums, etc.)
- [historic]https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:historic) (archeological sites, castles, etc.)
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!
