Tehran is a city in Iran at latitude 35°43′00.12″ North, longitude 51°24′00.00″ East.

Progress Summary

The project is still in its early days.

On 2007-03-04, Farzaneh got a GPS device, a Garmin eTrex Legend (b&w). Later, on 2007-04-01, Roozbeh got another of the same brand and model as a birthday present! We are now doing mapping the proper way. Before that, we had mostly used Landsat imagery and the personal knowledge of our own and of friends. We drew the topology of the area, wrote down the names of streets on paper, and later added it to OSM.

For the progress status, see the map.

First goals

In order to be able to divide the city into areas and handle each separately, we have a rough first goal of having all of the expressways in Tehran mapped first, so the city could be divided into areas between the expressways. Other interesting areas to prioritize is the area of Tarh-e Terafik and the area with restrictions for odd- and even-numbered vehicles.
