Data quality and completeness

Like much of OpenStreetMap, data in the Greater Toronto area is quite variable, consistent in some places and very much in need of improvement in others. This section is intended as a guide to data users, and to editors trying to see how they can be most helpful.

Future Roads constructions

  • On the Toronto construction projects wiki page you can find here a dedicated page that shows the future roads construction projects that are not yet finished, so that we can review them and add them to the map when the project it`s over.

Approaching completeness

  • Addresses and address ranges cover the area pretty completely, and an import to fill in the gaps is currently being discussed.
  • Streets are pretty thoroughly mapped, though there are some small alignment issues.
  • Transit routes are well mapped, though many lack stops, or at least stops that are included in the route relation.
  • Passenger and freight rail.
  • University campuses.

Areas that need some improvement

  • Building coverage is good in the city centre and some industrial areas, but most of the region has little or no building data.
  • Landuses of various sorts are maybe halfway toward complete coverage in the area.
