Road Classification

Use highway to classify the importance and usage of a way. Use tracktype to roughly classify the quality (regarding surface and smoothness conditions) of a way. To give more details on the quality, use surface and smoothness. For ways that cannot be used by cars, use either highway=path or a highway according to the importance of the way (for example highway=residential) together with a tag indicating the barriere for cars (for example width).

List of officially numbered roads

Mark all national roads as network=VN.

Mailing list



Users who are ready to help beginners to contribute in Vietnam Mapping Project:

  • Contact capiscuas AT if you would like to participate and don't know how to start
  • GeoGrafiker is a very experienced user from Germany. His motivation to help Vietnam Mapping Project is that he wants to go to Vietnam in November 2009. For this journey he needs the best available OSM maps. Please contact him through OSM mailing system.

Possible data sources

  • The U.S. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency has public domain country files with basic information on placenames. Nevertheless, it contains many errors and many towns are missplaced.
  • The AsiaGPS forum contains many GPS traces from Vietnam and Asia. Please contact them to encourage them to release their data into OSM.

Bing imagery

Bing imagery is not well aligned on some parts of the country. Download GPS tracks to check for correct alignment. Until Bing fix it, you need to manually enter the offset in JOSM (right-click on Bing layer -> New offset).

Date, Region/City, and offset of observed misalignments:

  • 2013-03, Hué, offset: 0.000126;-0.0000315
