Still to do

  • The road round the back of Somerfield is missing (between High Street, South Street and the railway line), and street names here are unlabelled.
  • Gaol Street (from High Street/Church Street junction to South Street, fairly newly pedestrianised) is missing.
  • The track out to Dog Kennel Cottage from the bypass is incomplete.
  • The course of the Oakham Canal is worth mapping. Done all the way from Wharflands out to Langham's Burley road. Beyond Burley road it needs doing.
  • Feedback from user paul on the Rutnet forum:
    • Cold Overton Road isn't marked. It's the straight-ish road that goses past the hospital & disused factories.
      • Marked in OSM, label is cropped out of this image. Ojw 00:16, 24 October 2006 (BST)
    • The road you have marked as 'Braunston Road', where it joins Cold Overton Road, is actually 'West Road'. Braunston Road continues over a junction round to join Long Row and Derwent Drive.
      • OJW's waypoint 159, should mark "Clifton Court, off West Road" (Clifton Court is just a block of flats + garage, probably not marked on our map) so we can add that - Fixed
    • John St (which loops around the back of the closed-down supermarket facing on to the High St) is missing.
  • Feedeback from user Mike on Rutnet:
    • You could spell cemetery correctly.
  • Some park areas are still hidden behind the landuse=residential rendering. Blackadder 10:55, 25 October 2006 (BST)
  • Change the colour of cycle paths to stand out better alongside the bypass route. Blackadder 10:55, 25 October 2006 (BST)
  • Schools are not showing up. The are there in the data and tagged with amenity=school so I guess it just needs an icon link or name display.
