Putting Clonmel's History on the Map

Useful apps for field work

Mapillary - a photographic capture app which results in data comparable to GoogleStreetview, can be used by pedestrians, on bicycles or in cars

StreetComplete - app which helps collect data about streets (names, lighting etc) and houses (house numbers/names, no. of levels, roof shapes)

OSMTracker - App to track routes which can be uploaded to OSM then. Allows the user to add notes and photographs along the way.

How to map using iD editor or JOSM
