Default Project Instructions

Blake explained that there will be another one or two months in order to review these instructions. Anyone is encouraged to edit the gitbook version directly. In the end project managers will be able to compile a base set of such instructions by clicking items in the new TM3 user interface when setting up a project. They will still be able to edit them manually.

Ralph mentioned that we need to care about residential areas. Experience shows that contributors attach place names to residential areas although the latter do not coincide with administrative boundaries. Project instructions should elaborate whether this landuse is required at all when all buildings have to be mapped anyways. The use of this landuse is also questionable in rural areas with a low population density and a sparse grid of buildings over a huge area.
