Things to do

  • Footpaths - there are many footpaths that lead out of Bath into the surrounding countryside, most of which are not yet mapped.
  • Tourist destinations - clearly the main users of maps in Bath are tourists. Adding all major attractions, will make the map very useful.
  • Bus routes and stops - bus stops have been imported from NAPTAN. These need to be verified. Also, bus route relations are missing - there's an extensive service in and around town, but barely anything on the OSM map. Bath/Bus Routes in Bath
