First ever mapping party
The Isle of Wight was the location of the first OSM worskshop, Isle of Wight workshop 2006.
We have mapped the Island extensively.
All surfaced roads are now believed to have been mapped based on ground survey.
Most footpaths and bridleways have been mapped using a combination of survey and tracing from NPE and OS Provisional/First_Edition maps. The Isle of Wight council released ROW data under the OGL in November 2016, and OSM has been updated from that. Some paths (particularly in west Wight) still (as of late 2016) remain unsurveyed, a survey is needed to confirm their exact route (the ways for these paths generally have a fixme tag).
Main article: Public transport on the Isle of Wight The island's self-contained nature makes it easy to distinguish services that are relevant, and one example of this is public transport. As of November 2009, a concerted effort is being made to add all the public transport services on and to the island. The current status of this effort can be seen in these tables.
There are a number of walking trails on the island. Though most of the footpaths / bridleways have probably been included in OSM through survey (or tracing from out of date Ordnance Survey maps), these paths have yet to be added to walking route relations.
Note that public right of way signs often have the ROW reference number on them, comprising one or two letters followed by some numbers. these should be noted in OSM using the prow_ref=*
