OS StreetView and Bing aerial imagery. Please check with active local mappers before adding or amending data from OS StreetView, Bing aerial imagery, or other sources. Newcastle and the surrounding area can be completed through ground-truth surveys and in-filling areas with StreetView acts as a significant disincentive to doing such mapping. In particular DO NOT AMEND existing data which has been acquired on the ground WITHOUT contacting the person who did the mapping. IF YOU DO NOT CONTACT EXISTING MAPPERS, THERE IS A RISK THAT YOUR CONTRIBUTION MIGHT BE REVERTED.
