Tendring(Essex District) is a district in Essex at latitude 51°51′54.00″ North, longitude 1°08′42.00″ East.
If using a XAPI bbox to cover Tendring, try [bbox=0.93,51.767,1.294,51.96].
top=51.96 left=0.93 bottom=51.767 right=1.294
osmosis --read-pbf file=great_britain.osm.pbf --bounding-box top=51.96 left=0.93 bottom=51.767 right=1.294 --write-pbf file=tendring.osm.pbf
An Osmosis Polygon is also available based on the district boundary relation as at 17/03/2011. This is very detailed and makes the extraction slower than a simple bounding box, but could be using in a command such as:
osmosis --read-pbf file=great_britain.osm.pbf --bounding-polygon file=tendring.txt --write-pbf file=tendring.osm.pbf
(where tendring.txt is a text file containing the polygon information mentioned above). The polygon file was generated using the code here which dezhin mentioned on the #osm IRC channel.
Speed comparisons at extracting Tendring from Essex on 17th March took about 7 seconds using the bbox and about 196 seconds using the bounding polygon (on the same machine).
The Tendring district is usually road complete. Most of the roads in the district also have their maxspeed=* tagged to reduce the number of Skobbler reports of missing maxspeeds. There are some unclassified roads that need revisiting to confirm their speeds but it is hoped that the district will be speed limit complete shortly. User:EdLoach has Maperitive rules available on his wiki page for highlighting maxspeeds.
If roads under construction are noticed it is important that these are mapped as highway=construction as both highway=construction ways and landuse=construction areas help identify areas that need regular resurveying until construction is complete.
Most addresses in Tendring have been added to ways traced from Bing or MapBox Satellite and then split as appropriate into the correct number of properties after a survey, with the address added using the addr:housenumber=* and/or addr:housename=* (etc) tags. A mixture of AssociatedStreet relations and/or addr:street=*/addr:city=* are then used to associated individual properties with the relevant way. Progress by area is shown in the parish table below.
Much landuse=* can be determined from Bing/MapBox Satellite imagery, especially landuse=farmland or landuse=residential, and for most of the district the imagery is also good enough to identify whether barriers are hedges or fences (tag ways with barrier=hedge or barrier=fence). If in doubt exclude an area until a survey has been done to confirm current usage.
It is believed that Tendring is primary school, secondary school, and college complete, as at June 2011 Project of the Month. There are probably many nurseries that remain untagged - see amenity=kindergarten for tagging.
A table that shows the known services (and their route_master relation ids) that are within or pass through the ceremonial Essex county is available at Essex/Bus_Routes.

Other Places/Routes/Local Projects
- The Essex Way passes through the district from Harwich to some point between Manningtree and Lawford.
- The Eastern route for the E2, according to the removed Ramblers Association webpage, passes through Tendring after taking the "Stour Valley Path (East Anglia) to Stratford St Mary" it then takes the "Essex Way to Ramsey then link path to Harwich International". (The link path was not detailed, and while there is a choice of 2 footpaths from Ramsey to join Ray Lane to Harwich International none have special markers to indicate which is the preferred route).
- National Cycle Route NR51 ( ) passes through the district from Harwich to near where it reaches Wivenhoe.
- In mid-2010 signs for a cycle route from Jaywick Martello Tower to Electric Cinema Harwich appeared. This route may be temporary for the duration of the project, but signs look like they'll last much longer, and sustrans is a sponsor. This route endured until early 2015 when signs were removed and part was re-signed as NCN150
- National Cycle Route NCN150 from Jaywick to Frinton-on-Sea
- EuroVelo route 2, the Capitals Route ( ) , passes through the district from Harwich International Port at Parkeston via NCN 51 to NCN 1 in Colchester, which it then follows south to London. There are no obvious signs for this.
- EuroVelo route 12, the North Sea Cycle Route ( ) , passes through the district from Harwich International Port at Parkeston via NCN 51 to NCN 1 in Colchester, which it then follows north. The route leaves Essex to the north of Colchester, between Langham and Stratford St Mary. The route is clearly signposted between the international port and where it meets NCN 51 in Cliff Park, Dovercourt.
- There is a project to try and complete the tagging of all postboxes in the district, including their reference (ref=) as determined from the information on the front of the box. Information is entered into OSM which is periodically imported by this website. Tendring is covered by postal areas CO11 (except for part of CO11 1, which is in Suffolk), CO12, CO13, CO14, CO15 and CO16 as well as parts of CO7 (roughly CO7 0, CO7 8 most of CO7 7, and two postcodes from CO7 9 - the rest of CO7 is in Colchester borough), and three postcodes from CO4 9 (the rest of CO4 also being in Colchester borough).
