OpenStreetMap community mapping guide – for Cycling Scotland
We’re pleased to announce the availability of a new brochure that we’ve done for Cycling Scotland, aimed at motivating people to get mapping for OpenStreetMap.
Cycle mapping for cycle routing with OpenStreetMap – the new community mapping guide – explains how you can get involved.
Cycling Scotland is the national cycle promotion organisation for Scotland, working to establish cycling as an acceptable, attractive and practical lifestyle option. We’ve been working with Cycling Scotland to improve cycle journey planning in Scotland. The new mapping guide is part of their Community Cycle Mapping project to encourage improved cycling information in OpenStreetMap to help people get on their bikes.
(Although it’s been created primarily for use in Scotland, the principles and details in it apply elsewhere too.)
The Guide has been written by Andy Allan, who has been contracting for us on a few projects recently, with additional contributions by Martin from CycleStreets. Ayesha Garrett did the design work and has, once again, done a superb job. Thanks to both of them!
