The London Borough of Sutton (map) is 44 sq km in south west London, home to ~180k people and a groundbreaking sustainability initiative called One Planet Sutton which is going to use OpenStreetMap for a lot of its work.

This is the New Popular Edition map of Sutton compared to the current extent of mapping in OpenStreetMap:

We are particularly interested in data on:

  • The basic roads for base maps in publications, web sites, etc.
  • Routes and facilities for cyclists, pedestrians, buses, trams, trains and car clubs
  • Community centres, shops and other key amenities

One Planet Sutton slippy map

Tom Chance and Thomas Wood are working on a nice slippy map of the area and would appreciate help in developing it. See WikiProject Sutton England/OPL map for more info.

  • Survey data has been collected for Roundshaw and has yet to be entered into OSM, this part of Sutton will require resurvey in the near future, due to ongoing regeneration works. The variation in the data provided by webmap services is quite amazing - even the OS differs with itself.
    • On that note, lots of parts of Sutton are due to undergo regeneration in the next 10 years, page 3 of this PDF shows a map with the planned changes to the Borough. Lots of scope to do very up-to-date mapping! TomChance
