To make OpenStreetMap more navigable and accurate in guidance, our mapping team started an editing project in Europe.

In this project we will focus on editing oneways, turn restrictions, road geometry and also validating the existing map by correcting keep right errors in Berlin, Germany.

Overall statistics

In the overall statistics for the city of Berlin, we have considered the following types of highway: motorway, trunk, primary, secondary, tertiary, unclassified, residential, living_street, service, track, road, ferry.

For each feature, our team has created some statistics:

City Road Geometry(km) Road Name(km) Road Name Gap(km) Oneway(km) Speed Limit(km) Speed Limit Gap (km) Lane Info(km) Lane Info Gap(km) Turn Restrictions Signposts
Berlin 10941.62 7072.45 3869.17 1831.42 6278.15 4663.47 2094.49 8847.13 1253 175


Improve OSM

For the cases to review, our team used the data from the ImproveOSM web site.


How to map

We will follow the mapping scheme that is already used in Italy, as it is described on this page:


• Pay attention to the direction of the way! Before adding the oneway=yes tag, make sure that the direction of digitization matches the direction of the oneway. If not, press "R" to reverse the direction and only after adding the oneway=yes tag.

For roundabouts, the oneway=yes is implied, so it is not necessary to add it explicitly.

To improve the existing data, we will focus on adding missing roads from valid sources.

We will follow the mapping scheme that is already used from the community:

Quality assurance

Quality Assurance tools help lead to a better quality of OSM data.

Error Detecting Tools ( Integrity checks and Keep right) check the OSM data for potential data errors.

Integrity Checks

Telenav uses OSM Data Integrity Checks for issues that would impact the road network and tags that affect automotive navigation applications.

Keep Right

Keep Right shows a large number of automatically detected potential errors on a map or in list form.It has a system for reporting false positives and for labeling a bug as fixed.
