To make OpenStreetMap more navigable and accurate in guidance, our mapping team started an editing project in Europe.
Brussels is one of the cities on which we will focus. We will be editing and reviewing one-ways, turn restrictions, road geometry and correcting any errors that might show up during our analysis.
The below analysis is based on Openstreetmap data downloaded on 19.03.2020.
|latitude: 50.842735, longitude: 4.362711|

Brussels is a town in Belgium at latitude 50°50′33.85″ North, longitude 4°21′45.76″ East.
For the below statistics, the following highway tag values were taken into consideration:
|City||Road Geometry (km)||Road Name (km)||Oneway (km)||Speed Limit (km)||Lane Info (km)||Turn Restrictions||Signposts|
We will review and add if necessary the oneway=yes tag on navigable roads after consulting the available data (OSM Oneway key).
|City||Cases to Review|
We will use the following tags:
-relations: type=restriction ; restriction= * ; except= *
-relations: type=restriction ; restriction:conditional= * ; except= *
-members: from, via, to
See also: Relation:restriction
|City||Cases to review|
We will add missing geometry to the existing navigable roads. Key:highway
Potential errors generated by the Integrity Checks tool. They are to be reviewed and editen only if it is the case as they are not always errors.
Please check OSM Wiki Integrity checks page for more details on how the data was obtained.
Below is a statistic of potential errors generated by the Keep Right tool. These are to be reviewed and edited only if considered so since false-positive cases are also generated.
|critical||from or to not a way||1|
|critical||missing from way||2|
|critical||missing to way||2|
|critical||wrong restriction angle||4|
|major||intersection without junction||4|
|minor||mixed layers intersections||30|
|minor||roundabout: not closed loop||4|
