Project area

Relation 4583248 (iD, JOSM, Potlatch2, history, analyze, manage, GPX, XML)

Project goals

Mapping on the project have following (and more) goals:

  1. To get the utmost possible data accuracy using high resolution imagery from Bing and Digital Globe in area.
  2. To provide up to date maps in the cases of disasters
  3. Show public bodies how OSM and satellite images will be useful to provide maps with higher spatial resolution for Large Geographic Area
  4. To update the spatial database for public use .
  5. To develop this project as a example project for other developing nations.

Possible scientific application

Map has always been the source of determination of pattern for analysis of BIG data. Beside humanitarian use, map from this project may also be useful for research purpose for different data and scientific veterans. Some of possible application are:

  • Analysis of deforestation
  • Analysis of spatial pattern for analysis and management of social conflict and problems.
  • Analysis of pattern of urbanization and economic Growth.
  • Planning of development projects.

How to get started

Tutorial to learn how to get started in mapping Kathmandu Valley and also read the Getting Involved page to begin contributing to OpenStreetMap.

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!

Naming Convention

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


Atrribute Value
name Basantapur
name:ne बसन्तपुर


  • Mappers from Western countries (people who are remotely mapping) on the project should focus on the geometry development (nodes, lines and polygons) 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.

Editors and tools

We can use following tools to map on this project for the fast editing of the data.

  • JOSM
  • iD - Some users may also use iD editor to contribute their work.
