  • The Department of Modern and Contemporary History of Ghent University has a HISGIS project, where you can see historical data, including boundaries. They were contacted, but currently do not work with external partners. The work is copyrighted by the UGent. (Cheezycrust 10:13, 7 January 2009 (UTC))

Bike Node Networks

  • Fietsnet has mapped 11550 kilometers of bike node networks in Flanders and parts of The Netherlands. Contacted for possible co-operation. (Cheezycrust 10:13, 7 January 2009 (UTC))
  • But based on some routes I've come to the conclusion that at least part of their tracks are based on the original maps, and not made with a gps. So we have to be careful with reusing their data. --Eimai 10:18, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

RAVeL Network maps

  • Cartographie RAVeL Walloon region has mapped the RAVeL trail tracks network (old rail tracks, etc...) in Wallonia (as well as other network such as "PICVerts"). Contacted for possible co-operation. (Phuba 10:30, 26 July 2009 (UTC))

The TEC bus stops and lines are available under Creative Commons License 4.0 BY-SA since April 2014.

The TEC data can be downloaded here in the BLTAC format (Belgium Local Transport Automatic Connexion). Specifications of the format is available here.

Still looking for a way to use the data in JOSM or other editor.

30 km/h zones from users

A long list of 30 km/h zones in Belgium, collected by users of the forum, has been posted here. A discussion in the talk-be mailinglist revealed that the manager of the 30 km/h zones project, Jean Herman, was "ok to give this work to the OSM community". A more formal permission (in particular with the Contributor Terms) has probably not been given. Anyway, someone added OpenStreetBugs for every entry in the list (November 2012). It is not possible to tag the zones correctly without research on locations, because the zones are all given by one coordinate only. Since OpenStreetBug is closing, these "bugs" should be removed. I (avena701) recommend not adding the list to Notes. Rather, I recommend to use the list as a inspiration for fieldwork:

  • Download [3] and extract the file zone30_BE.asc
  • Install the GpsBabel utility
  • Run the command

gpsbabel -i CSV -f zone30_BE.asc -x swap -o GPX -F zone30_BE.gpx

  • Open zone30_BE.gpx in JOSM or with your GPS device
