Panama City is on St. Andrews Bay, in the Florida Panhandle. The historic St. Andrews district has a marina and seafood restaurants. Panama City was chosen for its lack of buildings in OpenStreetMap and its location next to the Gulf, making it vulnerable to hurricanes.

INSTRUCTIONS: Please trace all the buildings and roads that you can see on the imagery. Tag each building as simply "building" - as we cannot always be sure of the building use from aerial imagery.
Tag the roads according to perceived type and usage. Please consult the OSM tagging dictionary for roads: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_Features#Highway
When saving your work, please leave the default comment and add what you actually mapped. For example, "added buildings and a residential road".
IMPORTANT NOTE ON IMAGERY: Toggle between Bing imagery, Digital Globe, and Mapbox imagery to help identify features. In general, different set of imagery may offer sharper image, easier recognition of objects on the ground.
Add TIGER streets to your background imagery for reference and comparison with OpenStreetMap data: - In iD, open the Background preferences, and tick the box for 'New & Misaligned TIGER Roads'.
Re-align OpenStreetMap data to the imagery. If the TIGER is acceptably correct, use it for naming. - Tag roads according to usage. In most cases, this will be 'unclassified' or 'unknown'. Refer to the wiki section on tagging road features.
