Mapping Bath

Last weekend, a gang of OpenStreetMappers descended upon Bath in the UK. I went along, to lend a hand, armed with my trusty Geko and a bike. I had already made an attempt at mapping the town ccentre, but not much outside the old city walls was done.

My first day’s results can be seen here, the second day’s work here, and all the raw data from the weekend from all the people involved is shown here. For only two day’s surveying, I think the amount of coverage is pretty impressive. That’s only the raw data though. Now lines need to be drawn on top, using vectors, then those vectors combined to make streets and the attibutes, tags, added, such as names, size and restrictions.
