Project Specific Notes
- Please use the "Split" link after you click the "Start Mapping" button if the task square is too large to finish in a comfortable time. (After 2 "Split"s the link will have a line through it and is not available)
- Mapping should be done with Bing imagery for this project. Some of this area has been mapped with older imagery, but all final mapping and validation should use Bing.
Some buildings are already mapped for much of this area. Please tag all buildings as:
Building Features=Buildingin iD
Please SQUARE (shortcut key = 'S' in iD editor & 'Q' in JOSM) the corners of square/rectangular buildings OR ROUND OFF/CIRCLE (shortcut key = 'O' in iD editor & 'shift-O' in JOSM) any round huts.
