Cleveland is a city in Ohio at latitude 41° 29′ 0″ North, longitude 81° 40′ 30″ West.

Things that have been mapped relatively well:

The University Circle neighborhood (including the CWRU campus) by [SomeoneCallAlejandro]

Legacy Village mall

The Towpath Trail

All schools within the City of Cleveland (done during national civic hacking day in April 2014).

Cleveland/RTA's bus routes (current as of April 2014).

Things to map

So much still left to map !

A couple neighborhoods/Areas [Old Brooklyn, Tremont, Central neighborhood (55th/Kinsman), St. Vincent's Charity Hospital's campus, Downtown, Ohio City, Kamm's Corner] are relatively more edited than other areas within Cleveland.

The suburbs have had minimal editing to them since the TIGER import. Suburban roads created since 2005 may not be on the map!

Amenities including Churches, schools, Parks, cemeteries, and Post offices were added during the GNIS Import. Most of them (especially ones outside the city of Cleveland) are represented as nodes instead of ways and are often incorrectly placed on the map a few hundred feet from their actual locations. Some of these have since closed or changed names.

The CSU college campus is very sparsely mapped and is definitely in need of mapping.

Innerbelt / Outdated Imagery / GPS traces

Significant construction to the I-90 bridge that runs through the southern end of downtown Cleveland, known locally as the Innerbelt, is being reconstructed from 2011-2016. As a result, GPS traces and aerial imagery do not match what is currently on the ground and mapped.

There is also extensive construction in parts of Cleveland - Flats East Bank project, Medical Mart, Cleveland State Campus, the Mall renovation) especially in Downtown Cleveland and the University Circle neighborhood so even the new bing imagery may not match what is really there and mapped.


It's recommended to use Bing or the MapBox/Digital Globe imagery.

the aerial imagery from Bing and MapBox/Digital Globe imagery in the city of Cleveland is of good quality and is from February 2012.

There is a minimal offset (less than 3meters).

You don't need to align any imagery. The mapquest and NAIP imagery is from 2008 and its resolutions is lower than bing's.
