If you have a goal that you are working towards or one that you would like to see get done (and are maybe willing to get the ball rolling) then add it to the list here, create a section where it can be coordinated and tracked, and a way of measuring progress.
How to participate?
If you have a GPS device:
- upload your tracks and edit them :)
If you haven't any GPS but are still willing to contribute you can participate in many ways:
- you can enhance this wiki page :)
- you can inventoriate and tagg, using Potlatch with Yahoo imagery or using JOSM with Yahoo or Landsat imagery.
- you can take contact with some public surveying institutions and ask them about the licencing of their data. Is there any of their geodata that are compatible with the OpenStreetMap opencontent licence?
- You can start mapping bus road or train tracks (using relations) - perhaps take contact with the main coach to ask about their road and their stop?
