  • Due to the fact that there isn't an active local community, is fundamental to survey the area (primarily those with multiple commercial activities: Via Venezia, Corso Salvatore Aldisio-Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Lungomare Federico II di Svevia) with Mapillary or OpenStreetCam. Although there are already some images in OpenStreetCam, currently we suggest to use Mapillary due to the fact that at the moment the OpenStreetCam wrongly blur many commercial signs that inhibit the mapping of many POIs.
  • Add lit,oneway speedlimit and surface tag to the highways.
  • Add buildings (residential, commercial, and industrial).
  • Add the house numbers, only few areas were mapped with these.(Current situation map)
  • Add local commercial activities (shops, restaurants, bars, coffees, ....)[WIP, contact Aury88].
  • Add suburbs boundary and other locality (contrade, rioni ... )
  • Add the farmland and other landuse and landcover. [WIP, contact Aury88]
