Important: 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: Unless you know the road classification, use 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.

Use highway='track' but only if the road leads to farmland Use highway='path' for narrow footpaths which cannot be traversed even with a 4x4


Waterways will be useful during this task, so feel free to map them as well.

waterway='stream' for the small ones waterway='river' for the bigger ones

Primary roads, secondary roads, all buildings, amenities, prominent landscape features, such as water bodies.
