Buildings and addresses

Building and addresses information is valuable data for the OpenStreetMap map. Currently not many Spanish municipalities have this information, so OpenStreetMap Spain is promoting the import of some cadastral data. There is an active proposal to import buildings and addresses from the Cadastre.

We are currently working on the import of buildings and addresses in Málaga through a project available at the OSM community task manager in Spain. Join us and help make OpenStreetMap even more useful!

To see the progress of this import, check out the results section on the proposal page. To follow the import projects at the provincial level, check the section of ongoing projects on the Province of Málaga page.

Street map

Nearly complete by 2013 using Cadastre and survey on the ground. Reviewed again in 2018 according to the proposal to import buildings and addresses.

Public transport

Main article: Public transport in Málaga

For everything related to public transport in Malaga: city buses, underground network, bike sharing system, bike lanes and parking lots, etc., please see the page dedicated to public transport in the city, document your progress and participate in ongoing projects.

Hiking

Main article: Hiking routes in Málaga

The municipality of Málaga has some small trails operated by the City Council that can be mapped. The mapping of regional, national or international trails that cross the municipality can be coordinated more extensively from the Spain/Hiking page. The mapping of provincial trails (e.g., the Gran Senda de Málaga) can be coordinated from the page dedicated to the province of Málaga.

See the specific page on hiking in the municipality of Malaga to know the current status of the mapped trails.

Culture

Main article: Cultural features in Málaga

If you are interested in cultural issues and want to collaborate in the mapping of features related to culture in Malaga, check the page Cultural features in Málaga to find out about ongoing projects and the latest progress in mapping cultural Malaga.

Disabilities

Main article: Disabilities

OpenStreetMap's contributors are particularly concerned about accessibility issues. We must think about the needs of all people if we are to achieve an accessible city. Please, when mapping in Malaga, don't forget to use tags that provide information about accessibility conditions for people with disabilities.

Quality assurance

Main article: Quality assurance
Add, check and fix. Solved!

OpenStreetMap contributors not only edit the map to add new information, they also do change tracking and error checking.

See Quality assurance to learn about the tracking and error checking tools available. Choose the one that best suits your needs, track changes and check consistency. By tracking the changes you will also be able to meet other contributors who map the municipality of Málaga and with whom you will probably share interests.

One of the simplest and easiest to use tracking tools is WhoDidIt, which allows you to select an area on the map and generate an RSS link from which to track changes in that area. Simply select the area of Málaga you are interested, generate the RSS link and follow it from your web browser or favorite feed reader. You will be notified of any new changes in your area of interest.

If you wish to contribute to the rapid solution of the notes that are created new in the Málaga area, you can add the following RSS link to your favorite feed reader:

https://www.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/notes/feed?bbox=-4.587889,36.634567,-4.260489,36.894043

If you prefer to select a different area, follow the instructions in Notes.
