Assessment of the quality/quantity of street-level imagery

OpenStreetCam MiltonKeynes.png
Mapillary Milton Keynes.png

First and foremost Google StreetView is *not* an option.

OSMUK have trialled both OpenStreetCam and Mapillary for the creation of street-level imagery using a 3D camera and a dashcam. Mapillary favours a dashcam which makes it useful for turn restrictions, etc. but less-so for shops, as there is no side-view. OpenStreetCam uses both 3D and in-front images.

The main roads are fairly well covered in OpenStreetCam. Of course there are many residential roads that would take considerable effort to film.

There is a fair amount of 2D imaging, including some from CycleStreets https://www.mapillary.com/app/?lat=52.04688267577578&lng=-0.7417496131131132&z=17&focus=photo&pKey=hA7Dt7ZeGV5KU3nYK0dmSw&x=0.5167717477434142&y=0.6292383861583881&zoom=0

Places of interest

  • It seems highly fitting that this area almost centres on Bletchley Park.
  • relation 3067646 is The Open University

Food Hygiene Rating System (FHRS) matching

The UK Food Hygiene Rating System data is matched at 69% https://gregrs.dev.openstreetmap.org/fhrs/district-312.html leaving little for an armchair mapper to improve.
