Road network improvements in Macedonia

Andrew Wiseman-2
Hello OSM Romania,

My name is Andrew Wiseman, I work for Apple on the maps team. My team is interested in doing some work on the road network in Romania on OpenStreetMap, things like adding missing roads, making sure roads connect properly, fixing incorrect alignments with GPS traces, ensuring road classifications are consistent, and other similar issues.

Are there places you know of that need improvement or types of problems you see frequently? And are there any imagery sources you'd recommend, any specific highway classification guidelines you recommend, or anything else that might help? I've seen https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_Romania

We have a Github page here about the project: https://github.com/osmlab/appledata/issues/137

Thank you,

Andrew

Re: Road network improvements in Macedonia

Hi Andrew, 

I'm guessing the subject should read "Romania" instead of "Macedonia"? :) 

The tagging rules for Romania are presented in the upper section of https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:Ro:Map_Features. Let me know if you need a manual translation. 

Beware of aligning with the traces - some, especially the old ones are not very reliable. If you do this automatically, I would test a bit with the highways first, as those are pretty well aligned in my experience. If you do it manually, you can use the buildings to properly align imagery. 

In recent years I haven't seen any major issues on the major roads, except the lack of or bad alignment of speed limits,which I don't think you can solve without local knowledge. If you find major issues, feel free to ask a local second opinion either here or on Facebook ("OpenStreetMap Romania" group). 

Good luck, 
  Strainu

Thank you! Fixed :) That’s all good to know, I’ll take a look, and visit the Facebook group as well. Is that more active than the email list or the OSM Romania Forum?

A bit more active that the mailing list, but still low-traffic. I have no idea about the forum, didn't even know it existed :)
