Espoo is a city in Finland at latitude 60° 12′ 0″ North, longitude 24° 42′ 0″ East.

Espoo is the second largest city in Finland with a population of about 240 000. Espoo is situated on the coast of Gulf of Finland, just west of Helsinki, the capital of Finland. The very small city of Kauniainen is inside of Espoo.

Most of the urban suburbs in Espoo are along the trunk roads Länsiväylä and Kehä 1 and the railroad. Other parts of the city have an abundance of detached houses, much more so than in the other cities of the capital region. Northern Espoo is mostly forest and a nature reserve of Nuuksio in the northwest.

Roads

Trunk roads/Väylät and Ring roads/Kehätiet

Complete.

Other main roads/Pääkadut

Seem complete and many of them have enough traces for accurate positioning, yet many don't. Classification could be thought of and some of the streets now tagged as secondary might better be tertiary, or even primary streets.

Residential and other streets

In the urban areas of eastern and southern Espoo these are mostly in place, but largely missing in the areas of smaller houses. Road names in Swedish are mostly missing, yet requested for in WikiProject Finland editing notes. Older anonymous mappings done with Potlatch need partial verification: some unconnected ways exist, some barriers haven't been mapped and several one way streets are not marked as such. One way streets are much less common than in Helsinki.

More than an exact measure of completeness, the values below are for guiding the mapping efforts of areas relative to others nearby. Even if the streets have been drawn, at present time most don't have any gps traces and can have up to 30 meters offset.

Some approximations of the coverage status for various areas, based on random sampling (the names are used here in a broader meaning than on the map, unless stated otherwise):
