Area of Focus

Our edits are focused on the roads and streets in Iran. In particular, we look into the geometrical and topological problems of the roads and streets, name and rename them, draw the missing roads and streets, and solve other network and navigation issues.


We use JOSM to make the changes.

Sources and Changeset Comments

In addition to satellite imagery, maps and GPS, Neshan users’ reports written in Persian are the main source of the information we use for the edits.

Also the changes made by Neshan editors are tagged with "گزارشات کاربران اپلیکیشن #نشان" in source changesets.
