If you have a goal that you are working towards or one that you would like to see get done (and are maybe willing to get the ball rolling) then add it to the list here, create a section where it can be coordinated and tracked, and a way of measuring progress. And then get on with it :-)

Area around Oslofjord covered by Yahoo! Aerial Imagery

Places with very little mapping

Regions, municipalities or others


I've started manually importing the pilgrimage routes/"pilegrimsledene" from Naturbase using josm and shp-to-osm --Olejorgenb 16:23, 14 May 2011 (BST) (

Parent relation for all the routes

Henrik Hodne is GPS-tracking roads. Not sure where the current data originates from. Any idea? If it's from Yahoo, should it be verified with GPS-tracking?

Tinn and Vinje Municipalities

--Svein Olav 11:07, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Road update from national released VBASE data. Editing Shape data in JOSM.

- Vinje roads 100% , need editing of maxspeed for municipal roads - Tinn roads 100%. need editing (adding) some maxspeed tags.

  • Import of national released address points from Shape data from SOSI format

- Vinje 100%

  • Import of SSR place names from national released SOSI data. National data contains multiple data to be simplified.
  • Import of landuse and natural polygons from national released N50 data. This is a heavy dataset which needs simplyfying and structuring for use of common border lines (ways) in relations as multipolygons. Polygons for lakes, rivers, forest, marsh, residece areas and other use common borders with other themes.

- Rauland - Møsvatn is imported.

Original text (date: Before 25 August 2009): In the east: Most of Vikhammer (which is actually in Malvik) missing

This area seems to have matured. I have started to fill in the last missing bits by bike surveying. Addresses (ie. house numbers) are missing though and I don't think I'll do them. --Olejorgenb 14:13, 12 May 2011 (BST)

I'm moving from Trondheim this fall, so I'll leave this area to someone else. Status should be decent though. --Olejorgenb 23:02, 15 July 2011 (BST)


Dag Sverre Fauske I started may 2009. I'm collecting GPX tracks on my bicycle trips. The goal is to map Valdres one step at the time :-) Valdres is an area consisting of the 6 municipalities.
