General Projects

A list of county-wide projects.


Main article: TIGER fixup

The map was created by importing the TIGER data, so lots of streets need to be realigned, and some might not even exist anymore (Try and survey before deleting any TIGER roads!). Make sure to add any county roads you fix to the list linked below.


Add new roads and subdivisions as well as marking businesses, even if it's just a node.

Road Classification

Main article: Wood County, Texas/County Routes

Need to make sure that all FM roads are marked highway=secondary or highway=tertiary, and state and US highways are always going to be highway=secondary or greater. Once they're properly aligned and tagged, they should be added/updated on the main relation list for state routes or US routes.

All county roads also need to be properly aligned, properly tagged, and then put in a relation of the entire route. The related documentation and list of progress is linked here to prevent this page becoming too cluttered.

Rivers, Streams, & Lakes

I hesitate to make this a project, but I've started mapping out waterways using USGS Topographic maps. Currently, Big Sandy Creek is mapped for almost it's whole length, apart from a short length south of the town of East Point, and many of it's tributaries on the southern half are mapped as well.

These waterways need to be checked to determine whether they're streams or rivers, as the USGS maps were mis-read on the first go.

Specific Projects

These are projects focused on a specific geographic area, such as mapping out a city or a large park.

Downtown Mineola

I've been working on getting most of the buildings in downtown Mineola at least added and maybe tagged for Simple 3D Buildings. As of right now (August 5, 2017), I've got about three-quarters of the buildings in historic downtown Mineola mapped, and one-third of those are tagged for Simple 3D Buildings.

I'd also like to note that there is a relation for the Downtown Mineola Historic District (relation 7418802), which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
