Rural mapping

Posted by Yuanls on 22 November 2018 in English (English)

I am now at a stage of mapping the rural areas outside Ellmouth. Is there anything I am missing or could improve my mapping? I am not particularly experienced in rural mapping.

Does anyone have a list of special amenities such as sewage disposals, landfills and power transformers I should consider putting in? For most of my mapping I've operated on a basis of 'if I haven't mapped it yet it must be somewhere else'. I'm running out of the 'somewhere else' space now.

Thanks!

You can add farmyards and farms, maybe that is it according to me.

@Yuanls,

User @Mstr's has compiled a page of all the mapping features available in OGF/OSM which may include the "list of special amenities" that you are seeking for.

;D

Hope this helps,

@The_Cute_Chick the list is far away from being complete!

main idea of the list is to be able to check

  • how other users map some specific features

  • how tags are used in osm (click on the link behind to get the explanation and link to osm-overpass)

As a former told me: Best to work is on rectangeled fields - with modern tractors 500 m long, if possible. 200 m is workable too.

@iiEarth+Histor

That did come into mind but they don't really show on low zoom levels, and plus their existence is already implied by the mapping of farmland. I don't think mapping them is really worthwhile.

@TCC

It seems a bit long but I'll check it out.

I'm not sure if your going for a sharp contrast but what you can do is exurban style mapping of more border neighborhoods surrounded by farms.

@Portopolis

Do you mean a more gradual transition? I've tried to go for that to the extent I've seen it in the UK.
