When saving your work, please leave the default comment but add what you actually mapped, for example "added buildings and a residential road".


Satellite images: Use only the DigitalGlobe premium imagery

You will be using satellite imagery to map roads, buildings, waterways. For guideline on remote mapping please refer to this wiki: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_Bangladesh#To_Know_more_about_Bangladesh

To be efficient with mapping buildings we suggest you use JOSM with building plugin installed.

Regarding waterways: the main river - the Brahmaputra - in already done, however you will find the banks of the river on the satellite image and the map are not the same. Because it is a llong river and the lines of the riverbank are very long and outside the tile and the project, please do not change this. Connect other waterways as good as possible to the main river.
