Gauteng Province (June & July 2018)

  • Ground Focus - Visual Collection of Street Names, Verification of Oneway Streets in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Soweto, Randburg, Vereeniging, Sandton, Centurion
  • Issues - Gated communities with restricted access for non-residents. Many townships with little to no street signs or signs were out of date, Streets were unnavigable due to inclement road conditions (unpaved, pooling water), Missing geometry
  • Post Processing - Street Name Consistency, Turn Restrictions, Turning Lanes, Pedestrian Crossings, Surface Types, and Lanes, Additional Geometry

Community Editing Suggestions - Determining road names within gated communities and townships, geometry improvements.
