Firstly, thank you for taking the time to attend this event! We hope that it will yield some important data improvements to OpenStreetMap (OSM), but also that you enjoy the process of contributing to the map.
The objective of the mapathon is to improve the green spaces data in OSM. We are defining green space using the following tags. These are the tags that will be brought forward into our analysis:
leisure = [ ‘playground’ , ’pitch’ , 'park' , 'garden' ]
landuse = [ ‘recreation_ground’ , ’meadow’ ]
And as second priority,
natural = [ 'beach' , 'fell' , 'grassland' , 'heath' , 'wetland' , 'wood' ]
For the mapathon, there are three main tasks:
1.) Improving Geometric Footprints
2.) Improving Tagging accuracy for the above tags
3.) Public / Private tagging - identifying non-public assets with these tags, and adding 'private=yes'
Hint: It is advisable to use JOSM (https://josm.openstreetmap.de) to do the OSM editing, as the ‘filter’ functionality will help users to look at specific tags, one at a time, for their area. For instructions on filtering, see: https://josm.openstreetmap.de/wiki/Help/Dialog/Filter or https://blog.mapbox.com/using-filters-in-josm-99a7415f6235
