Orthofotos

Local orthofotos provided by the land surveying office of the City of Bern - Vermessungsamt der Stadt Bern

We are allowed to use the orthofotos provided by the Vermessungsamt of the city of Bern, see email.

Orthofotos 2012 are available from the web site of Bern.

In JOSM:

  1. configure the following WMS URL in the preferences: wms:http://map.bern.ch/wms/JIiHcTstVD/proxy.php?LAYERS=0&BBOX={bbox}&WIDTH={width}&HEIGHT={height}&SRS={proj}
  2. configure the projection SwissGrid in the preferences


In iD (will become available in the default configuration soon):

Bing

We are allowed to trace over Bing imagery covering Berne. It's recommended to use local orthofotos, though. Bing imagery and local orthofotos are not perfectly aligned. Please do not try to realign OSM data derived from local orthofotos with Bing imagery!

Data

Data import boundaries suburbs and quarters of the city of Bern / Datenimport Stadtteil- und Quartiergrenzen der Stadt Bern

Many times OSM data users asked for the boundaries of the suburbs and quarters within the City of Bern. Thus, the same kind of data as OSM provides of the City of Zürich.

According to the import guidelines a dedicated wiki page documents "Datenimport Stadtteil- und Quartiergrenzen der Stadt Bern" for coordination and documentation purposes. Data provider and owner is the land surveying office of the City of Bern.

/

Verschiedentlich wurde von Anwendern der OSM Daten der Wunsch geäussert, dass die Grenzen der Berner Statdteile - und quartiere (Quartiere sind auch als statistische Bezirke bekannt), wie diejenigen der Stadt Zürich, in OSM zur Verfügung stehen.

Gemäss den Richtlinien Datenimport in OSM ist dafür eine gesonderte Wiki Seite zu führen um das Projekt Datenimport Stadtteil- und Quartiergrenzen der Stadt Bern zu koordinieren und zu dokumentieren. Die Datenhoheit liegt beim Vermessungsamt der Stadt Bern.

How to help

Please report errors or missing features on the map using Notes.

Surveying

Your help is welcome!

  • update street names. If a street name is missing and you know it, then please let us know. The simplest way for you is to add the name using Notes - just create a marker at the appropriate position on the map and add the missing name.
  • add points of interest. Do you know about schools, museums, public buildings, water parks, swimming halls, or sport areas? Just launch the online map editor Potlatch and add them to the map.

GPS traces wanted

Please collect GPS traces in and around Bern and upload them to OSM. Make sure you add the tags Switzerland and Bern when uploading.
