place=suburb A dependent municipality within a city, or an independent municipality next to a much bigger city.
place=town A municipality having a population of at least 10,000 people and good range of local facilities including schools, medical facilities etc and traditionally a market. Like Skhirat, Tamesna, Sidi Kacem...
place=village A municipality having a population less then 10,000 people, larger than an hamlet, and with a significant infrastructure.
place=quarter A populated urban part of a suburb, town, or village, larger than a neighbourhood. Not a municipality.
place=neighbourhood A populated urban part of a suburb, town, quarter, or village. Not a municipality.
place=hamlet A rural community less than 100-200 inhabitants, few infrastructure except a public access road or path. Not a municipality. Mostly douars.
place=isolated_dwelling A rural named place with a single inhabited building or farm, almost no infrastructure except a nearby road or a private access path. Not a municipality.
place=locality Other small named place without clearly defined borders and an unspecified number of buildings around. Not a municipality. Only nodes, for example, a crossroad with a locally known name, or a former hamlet, or just some facilities (possibly disused).

Kaart mapping

Kaart conducts ground surveys for improvements to OSM data. A list of editors can be found on Kaart wiki page. OpenStreetCam imagery can be viewed here.

Tangier Province (April 2018)

  • Ground Focus - Visual Collection of Street Names, Verification of Oneway Streets in Tanger, Gueznaia, Tétouan, Martil, M'Diq, Chefchaouen
  • Issues - Many streets were unnavigable due to size of road (walkway/residential), Missing geometry
  • Post Processing - Street Name Consistency, Turn Restrictions, Turning Lanes, Pedestrian Crossings, Surface Types and Lanes, Additional Geometry

Community Editing Suggestions - Medina geometry improvements, footpaths should be determined for length and continuity.

  • Martin: I would like to get some agreement on how to tag the main roads. Please see the discussion page. --23 October 2009
  • Alilo I have extra GPSs 1 USB GPS, 2x PDA GPS, 1x Bluetooth GPS, If you are in Morocco and do not have a GPS contact me I might lend one.
Hello Alilo,
I standing the up to the second week in June in Agadir (for 10 days). Can you contact me!
--Helmut K 06:56, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
  • nickb: I am interested in organising mapping parties in Marrakech - if anyone in Morocco would like to be involved, please contact me.
  • memch: I implemented a background-tileserver for out-of-copyright maps of morocco. Just visit here, select useful background, zoom to your area and click once to open potlatch here. See my page memch for details. Feel free to contact me here.
  • SN74LS00: My focus is mainly on extreme South of Morocco and Western Sahara.
  • Sinplomo: Ive been doing some work mapping Tetouan (north of morocco). Contact me if you are interested in helping with Tetouan. I could help with motorways, primary and secondary ways, ask me !
  • Johnparis: I mostly work on Oujda and Oriental, but I also use Osmose for quality control, so we have zero Level 1 or 2 errors.
