Mapping Projects

  • There are a lot of 'hamlets' that need clean up: Salt Lake County / Utah County / Davis County.
  • Much of the existing data comes from the TIGER and GNIS imports. Both datasets suffer from being significantly out-of-alignment from reality. If you see an object that doesn't match up with where it should be, feel free to adjust it into line or redraw it in a more accurate location. The Yahoo imagery and GPS tracks tend to be accurate. TIGER data in the outer metropolitan areas is better aligned than that in the inner city.
  • I have reclassified many of the Salt Lake City roads so they make sense. See: User:Kevina/Salt Lake City Highway Classification. Many areas can still use some work. Please help but first read: United States Road Classification Guidelines
  • I ran a script to clean up the street names. See: User:Kevina/Salt Lake Grid Cleanup Script. There is still more work to do here.
  • There is a blind OSM user in Salt Lake City, 84101, who would appreciate if anybody could add some information of special interest, see OSM for the blind for details.

Thank you!
