Are you?

Started mapping in Jan 2012, waiting until I had a decent enough phone with GPS to do so.

Most of my mapping has been isolated to the City & County of Galway. This will change as Galway nears completion towards a useable map with all major items recorded, to extend out to other areas in Ireland.

I intend on using new Bing imagery to trace existing roads in Ireland as the new imagery becomes available.

Organisation of Mapping Parties

  • 23rd March 2013 - Tracing of buildings in Galway City, west of the River Corrib
    • Over a dozen people from around the world, including several from Ireland, participated in a MapCraft job to trace every building not already traced. This was anticipated to take over a week to complete, it was completed within 39 hours.
    • MapCraft job can be found here
    • A video was created by Derick Rethans showing the activity. It can be viewed here
