OSM Coverage

There is a fair amount of OSM coverage for the city, but not that much has been tagged yet. There are also quite a lot of "interesting" segments and ways, which appear to have been auto-generated from noisy gpx trackpoints.

CIRB UrbIS

The open license allow us to import data from urbis : http://cirb.brussels/fr/nos-solutions/urbis-solutions/licence-urbis-open-data

The data UrbIS TOPO have been converted in June 2013 and are stored here : http://osm.bmaron.net/urbis/

Global stats are produced by eMerzh : http tinyurl.com/stats-osm-urbis (long version)

Yahoo! Aerial Imagery coverage

Yahoo! Aerial Imagery is available for the whole of Brussels and surrounding region. We can work with the imagery by using Potlatch or using the WMS plugin for JOSM. We can use it to map more accurately, or to map in two phases, sketching in road layouts before we even go there.

Languages

Brussels (Bruxelles in French or Brussel in Dutch) is officially a bilingual city and administrative district. Therefore it is unclear which language should be used to tag streets and place names. The city page was moved to a more general English version for now but a better solution is needed. Please join the discussion on the Belgium project discussion page to help decide how we should handle this.

Brussels

Brussels (French: Bruxelles, pronounced [bʁysɛl], and sometimes [bʁyksɛl] by non-Belgian speakers of French; Dutch: Brussel, pronounced [brʏsəl]; German: Brüssel) is the capital of Belgium, the French Community of Belgium, the Flemish Community and the main seat of the European Union's institutions (and thus often considered 'The Capital of Europe'). -- Source Wikipedia
