What is OpenStreetMap?
OpenStreetMap is the "Wikipedia of maps"
Anyone (like YOU!) can edit OSM
So, let's sign up now!
Where to learn more: www.learnosm.org wiki.osm.org help.osm.org
To learn how to add any kind of thing to the map: wiki.osm.org / wiki / Map_Features
Am I doing it the right way? Read about wiki.osm.org / wiki / Good_practice
Let's get started!
Two ways to edit OSM: web editor iD or advanced editor JOSM
iD: just click edit up in the corner ↖︎
Look: layers! ⬈
Look: notes!⬊
data model: nodes / ways / relations
OK! But what should I edit first? Suggestions:
Trace some buildings
Add some POIs (points of interest)
Play MapRoulette
Do some HOT tasks (Humanitarian OSM Team)
Get outside!
What not to do:
Main rule of thumb: no copying from Google products!
OSM is licensed under the Open Database License: ODbL
More on that another time...
Advanced stuff: (Quality Assurance tools)
ITO World OSM Mapper
I've got some data, can I load it into OSM?
That's also complicated... Read more here: wiki.osm.org / wiki / Import / Guidelines
Get feedback before you import anything!
Now get out there and start mapping!
