Gent is a city in Belgium at latitude 51° 1′ 48″ North, longitude 3° 42′ 36″ East.


Gent/Zomer 2013 a series of summer meet-ups for any OSM-related enthousiasts in and around Gent! Feel free to join us any time of a conversation and a drink.

OSM Coverage

Quite a few segments around the city, but not much tagged. It would be really helpfull that the creator of the gps segments would put his information about the streets online. That way more people could help tagging.

I live in Gent and now checked out the available data. In my area I did a check with my GPS and noted that some double lane streets are only mapped in one direction and that some segments represent non-existent streets. I'll start correcting and adding just north of the railway station (where I live) and then add as I have time. Glad to join this project :-) Sebastiaan 00:22, 27 August 2007 (BST)
I noticed new segments being added. I'm happy no longer to be alone around here. If the user who mapped the Rabotstraat and Burgstraat wants to, we could maybe join forces? Please contact me using wiki or OSM account. Thanks. (I noticed the streets being copyrighted 'xaa', but that user seems to live in the netherlands..) Sebastiaan 09:25, 22 October 2007 (BST)

Gent is slowly getting better and better: Wondelgem, Mariakerke, Sint-Denijs-Westrem are largely complete, Oostakker has been put on the map, the east of town has still some empty spots an Baarle is almost completely missing, but it is on my to do list :-) Thanks for all the marvelous help!Pietje leugenaar 21:08, 2 June 2010 (UTC)
