Wansbeck Parliament constituency, as of August 2019.

The August 2019 24-hour mapathon will occur on Sunday 11th August. Wansbeck is a UK parliamentary constituency and is an area of Northumberland(map) that includes Morpeth, Ashington, Bedlington, and Newbiggin-by-the-sea. Morpeth is easy to reach by train, and could be a focus (especially for house numbers).

There are several ways to organise what we do, the main way is to see if we can have at least one person active (mapping remotely or on-the-ground) for every hour of the day.

Please edit this page, sign up to say if/where/what you might focus on. If you want to get in touch with someone you can contact Gregory through OSM Messages or on Twitter.

Areas to consider

  • House numbers (see Cramlington for example)
  • Any missing footpaths?
  • New housing developments (can anyone gather a list/locations?)
    • LastGrape/Gregory might focus on this
    • Look at construction sites on Overpass for sites that might be complete.
    • Blossom Park, Barratt Homes, near Hebron Avenue, Pegswood - unknown if work has started.
    • The Fairways, Linden Homes, South end of Morpeth - unknown if work has started.
  • Map rooftop solar panels to coincide with the quarterly project. Wansbeck has 1279 to map (although Morpeth is not included in that area)
  • Potential cafe/pub to meet in if people in-person want to meet at some point in the day.

Remote Mapping

Later this will be a list of things that can be done by remote-only mappers, such as links to street-level imagery. If you're interested, sign up for an hour(s) when you plan to be online/available, or add your name here.

  • Gather a list of new housing developments/locations.

Before the Mapathon

These statistics are as of, thanks to the data download from Geofabrik. If anyone is interested in mapping specific themes then I can try and extract other stats.
