Brussels is a city in Belgium at latitude 50° 51′ 0″ North, longitude 4° 21′ 0″ East.
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.

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.

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 (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
