Features of note


To Do

Some tasks that could be done by one person with a bit of OSM experience and an hour or two spare:

  1. Southampton General Hospital wasn't mapped during the last mapping party in Southampton. Someone was supposed to be covering that area soon afterwards, but for whatever reason they never uploaded data for the hospital. Were you that someone? Are you visiting the General Hospital? Hope it's nothing serious, but please take a GPS and add some data.
  2. The City Council provides high quality maps of central Southampton (from Polygon and Northam south to the Docks) which may not have been created from Ordnance Survey data (there's no Crown Copyright mark on them, nor a license number). These maps are obtained from Walking Distance (phone 023 8023 7654) and if they're really not Ordnance Survey data then the council might be persuaded to let OSM use them as a source in the future. Otherwise it's a free, legal way to get copies of a decent map of the city for any project that requires such a thing and can't yet use OSM.

Other Tasks:

  1. More building outlines, some of the city is done, but much remains to do!
