I’ve been doing Luciano’s mapper challenge for this month, focusing on the city of Kanton.
The university campus: http://opengeofiction.net/#map=18/52.10895/110.98005
The old factory area near the station, now mostly apartments and the museum and cultural centre, although the piano factory still operates: http://opengeofiction.net/#map=17/52.10193/111.00635
Here we can see an out-of-town shopping centre, and a large complex of test tracks for certifying cars and transport research: http://opengeofiction.net/#map=14/52.1567/110.9462
And the medieval island and cathedral: http://opengeofiction.net/#map=17/52.10625/110.99134. Many touristic buildings exist here, like the old bishop’s palace, the Old School, the st Clair pensioner’s home, the cathedral library and choristers’ school and the old town hall. There are plenty of watering-holes for the tourists. Are the medium-sized buildings (eg those on Domkatu) about the right size for wealthy merchants’ houses?
I want to put a ‘no straight on’ or ‘must turn right’ turn restriction on the junction of Saarkatu and Säntjanas Õt, but the only way I can see to do this is to create a multipolygon relation, which seems bizarre. I see this symbols quite often in OSM so I know they can be created.

Looks awesome! Especially the University area. It’s mapping like yours that I’ve been looking at for inspiration working on downtown Quentinsburgh.

Wow! Looks very good!! I would live close to Domplats, hehehe :-)

Yes, you need a restriction relation (not type multipolygon) for turn restrictions. http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Relation:restriction

One more question regarding link roads: if there is a link road from a secondary to a trunk, should that be tagged secondary link or trunk link? And should a road from a trunk to a secondary be tagged the same way?
Comment from wangi on 9 May 2016 at 19:09
I believe that the common approach is to base it on the highest status road. So trunk link in both your cases.

Wow! This is such nice, detailed work. I was wondering what that test track was!

Very nice! St. Richards is a mess and I have been slowly working on it. The rail system and military compounds around the city in St. Richards are going to be my priority soon.
