Mapping in Kingston upon Hull

On Monday 29th September the UK team welcomed students and colleagues from Germany, Spain, Turkey and Romania to take part in a range of OSM mapping activities. During their stay the students successfully mapped buildings in the Old Town area of Hull city centre and collected locational data for each of the 41 items on the Seven Seas Fish Trail.

Fishtrail

The Seven Seas Fish Trail consists of 41 pieces of sculpture made from traditional materials. The trail provides a unique tour of Hull's historic old town. During the visit to Hull students and teachers from the partnership schools mapped the Fish Trail using a GPS tracker. This involved the students following the trail and geotagging each sculpture on the trail.

When we returned to Archbishop Sentamu Academy
this information was then uploaded to the OSM database.

With the Overpass Turbo Wizzard we generated the following query
and we could check our uploads directly.

<osm-script output="json" timeout="25">
  <id-query into="searchArea" ref="3600060148" type="area"/>

Waymarkedtrails.org is based on OSM
We created a relation and the relation appers directly on Waymarked Trails.

The (minimum) tags we need is explained here.
Thus, we used the tags: type=route and route=hiking
The image on the left shows the results of this.

We have recently imported the GPS data for the route
and the sculptures into uMap and are adding
photographs of each location.

You can see the results
in the Fish Trail Map we have developed.

Ale Trail

A map to show the route of the Ale Trail
The Ale Trail is a route that takes you to some of Hull's most historic public houses.

The trail comprises a unique tour of Hull's historic old town. During the visit to Hull students and teachers
from the partnership schools mapped the Ale Trail using a GPS tracker.
Please read above which tags you need, that the route appears on Waymarked Trails.

The image on the left shows the results of this.






We used more as the minimum tags to describe the trails better:

all tags we used for Ale Trail and Fish Trail

Old Town

Annotated map of Hull's Old Town
Following a guided tour of Hull's Old Town the students were provided with blank base maps which

they used to record geospatial data in the field. Once the students had collected this information
they then returned to Archbishop Sentamu Academy to transfer this information into OpenStreetMap.

This involved mapping buildings that had not already been included through the use aerial
photographs. For each building students also added a range of tags to identify the use of the
buildings along with business names and addresses.

The map on the left shows buildings and labels
added to the map of Hull's Old Town by students involved in the project.

Hull City of Culture

The map below shows an extract from a map being created by students in Hull to identify the locations of attractions and venues associated with the 2017 City of Culture. The map continues to be updated as attractions and venues are announced.

uMap from York

The map below was created as the result of members of the group gathering data from the field then using OSM and UMap to develop an interactive map featuring historical and cultural attractions in our neighbouring city of York.
