When saving your work, please leave the default comment but add what you actually mapped, for example "added buildings and a residential road".
Buildings Buildings are generally round or rectangular be tagged as Building Features='Building' . There are keyboard shortcuts for creating the shapes.
For tracing circular shapes, use the 'O' key and for rectangular buildings, use the 'S' key.
Major roads: highway=unclassified connecting smaller villages and hamlets highway=tertiary for main roads connecting towns If road networks already exist, but do not follow the satellite imagery accurately, please adjust accordingly.
Other road tags:
Smaller offshoot roads should be ignored unless they link different areas of habitation.
highway=residential inside residential boundaries highway=track only goes to farmland highway=path, narrow footpaths, not even a 4x4 can get down this
Waterways are not a requirement of this task, they can however be useful, feel free to map them as well.
waterway=stream for the small ones waterway=river for the bigger ones
