Ever since breaking my ankle at the beginning of September, I have been waaaay less mobile. Only by now am I (almost) capable of (slowly) walking again without crutches.
Unexpected(?) side effect: I have barely edited #openstreetmap during this time. Planning and surveying routes during runs is a much larger factor for me than I thought.
@ward always need random destinations and reasons to go there. how can I know where there are areas in need of filling in/correcting?
@coldwave You could look around for notes on the map with questions from other mappers. A skim where aerial imagery and routes dont match up is also easy to quickly confirm.
I dont prep it in that way. Mostly I plan a route based on just what I feel like running, unrelated to OSM. The updating follows from spotting things that do not add up with the route that I planned, or noticing a lack of mapped POIs etc.
