Who are mapping?

State of the map

We began to map the region in early 2007. At present the OSM data coverage covers most of the main roads in the region. The entire road network of the Red de Interés del Estado (RIGE) are mapped, as well as autonomic roads first and second level. Local roads or third order are completed. Currently the municipal and urban roads are being completed.

A practically manual import of buildings is being carried out based on data from the Cadastre, incorporating addresses and portal numbers for the municipalities of:

  • Castro Urdiales.
  • Entrambasaguas.
  • Medio Cudeyo.
  • Santander (partially, there are almost half of them left).
  • San Roque de Río Miera (only buildings).
  • Miera (only buildings).
  • Liérganes (partly).
  • Riotuerto (partly).
