Ongoing Projects

  1. The boundaries for all of the Amphoe and Tambon need to be sourced and mapped- please see this topic on the OSM forums
  2. Place names need to be defined in Thai and English for all of the above boundaries
  3. Roads need to be surveyed for names
  4. More GPS tracks to aid in allignment are required
  5. Landuse - Woods, water and grassland
  6. ...and of course, POI's! Restaurants, Hotels, Bars, Shops and anything else you can think of - see the Map Features page for ideas

Data sources

In addition to a survey with GPS one may also use aerial imagery if available with a suitable license.

Bing aerial imagery is available in many parts. Landsat provides coverage of the whole country and is available with different image modes.
