What needs work


Quite a bit of TIGER data needs to be verified. See the Maplint link for details. We also need your GPS tracks! Please upload your tracks so that we may use them!

GPS tracks

GPS tracks need to be verified and ways adjusted as such.

Cycle Map

The cycle map for this area is in sorry shape right now. Please use cycleway=lane on roads with bicycle lanes, highway=cycleway for dedicated cycleways (JOSM can do this for you). Please use bicycle=destination on ways that are open to cyclists but hazardous for travel due to high volume and lack of shoulders, and bicycle=yes on I-5 through Salem.


OpenStreetBugs is being used in this area. Please be sure to check it for known errors in this area, and please mark bugs you know about so more attention can be paid to those areas.


Remember to tag routes using relations, don't tag the underlying way. The maps should be picking up relation tags soon. State Routes seem to be fairly well covered, but CARTS, CAT, SMART, Cherriots, Greyhound and Amtrak routes are missing or incomplete in this region.
