E London
Central London is very close to being fully mapped, largely thanks to the London mapping party in Jan '07, but we dont have the whole of zone 1 mapped quite yet.

Greater London coverage is a bit patchy, with parts of SW London and N London looking more complete than the rest.

London mapping should be greatly helped by the Yahoo! Aerial Imagery

EH Edinburgh
FY1-3 Blackpool ~10% ~10% ~10% Trying to walk as many roads within a mile of Great Marton and also taking the GPS with me on journeys in the area to capture as much detail as possible. Will also try to cover main and some minor roads in St Annes, Lytham, Kirkham, Cleveleys, Thornton, Fleetwood as I drive around. Great Marton is now filling out with residential roads. Also reasonable coverage of roads between Blackpool and Kirkham. Having difficulty with road classifications. Some 4-digit A roads and even fairly minor B roads have green signs which should make them trunk routes! Packman 28 Sept 2007

Almost all roads are ways with name and highway tags; very few unwayed segments.
