Bogota (Sept 2017)

  • Ground Focus - Visual collection of street names, verification of oneway streets
  • Issues - Many streets were unnavigable due to size or steepness of road, Many streets were mapped in OSM as residential when they were stairs or footways
  • Post Processing - Street name consistency, turn restrictions, turning lanes, surface types and lanes

Community Editing Suggestions -

Medellin (March 2018)

GPS Tracks by Kaart date:3.30.2018


  • Ground Focus - Visual collection of street names, verification of oneway streets
  • Issues - Many streets were unnavigable due to size or steepness of road. Many streets were mapped in OSM as residential when they were stairs or footways
  • Post Processing - Street name consistency, turn restrictions, turning lanes, pedestrian crossings, surface types and lanes

Community Editing Suggestions - Many of the streets in the steep East and West neighborhoods are incorrectly labeled as streets when they are steps or footways. Fixing these would be very helpful for automobile as well as pedestrian navigation. Checking on the through-ness and continuity of the existing residential streets and working on classifying living streets vs residential.
