Tracing Aerial Imagery
This is the easiest way to quickly and effortlessly edit, fix or add map details, create new ways without having to drive around town with GPS logger and camera :-) So, what should we do? Just open www.openstreetmap.org, move the map to your hometown, click on Edit, register/login, and happy mapping!
The attribute name will always be in Romanized alphabets. Example: Use "Basantapur" for the name keyword. Always use the official name when possible. If another name is more popular name:alt can be used. To write the names in localized script, use name:ne
Mappers from Western countries (people who are remotely mapping) on the project should focus on the geometry development (Point, Line, Polygon) with highest possible spatial accuracy.
People nearby or at Nepal (Local People) should Name the features and add other important attributes (tags) of the spatial data.
Progress of geometry data as well as attribute information should be updated together. The collaboration of International mappers and local people makes the complete map because only geometry or the only text can never give complete information.
All the Technical information about mapping, specification, tags, relationships can be found at Project Ilam Specification page
