A good way to get involved in the OpenStreetMap project is to upload GNSS (GPS, Galileo or GLONASS) trace. Recorded by your satellite receiver or mobile phone, the typical trace is a record of your location every second, or every meter ("tracelog"). Convert it to GPX format if it wasn't done for you automatically. The collected data can be displayed as a background of thin lines or little dots within the map editor. These lines and dots can then be used to help you add map features (such as roads and footpaths), similar to tracing from aerial imagery. GPS Satellite NASA art-iif.jpg
