Project Of The Week : Department Stores
A department store sells a wide variety of durable goods for the home. Large and small appliances, furniture and kitchenware may each have sections or departments of the store. Clothing departments may be further divided by customer and use, such as Infant and Toddler or Outdoor clothing. The departments will continue, perhaps with jewelry and cosmetics or sporting goods.
The Project of the Week is to add local Department Stores to the map.

RFC : Sidewalk And Draft Sidewalk as separate way

There is also another proposal just created that prefers to handle sidewalks as a separate way.
State of House number mapping
A mapper asked the mailing list if there are other big cities that have complete house numbering, achieved manually, like in Rostock ( 200 000 inhabitants) .
It's likely no other cities are near this amazing result without using interpolation and import. This topic also includes discussion of the mobile applications that were used like Dedee GpsLogger or KeypadMapper.
