Help us to update and correct the Louvain-la-Neuve road network !

In this project, we will mainly correct the existing roads in the city. Some roads are missing and some should be redrawn.

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

A lot of roads are already mapped in Louvain-la-Neuve area. Please use the JOSM validation tool to detect errors and warnings.

Typical verification steps

  • Check the geometry and localisation of the ways. Don't forget to add the missing interesections with other highways.
  • Check the tagging (correct highways). See Tips for more informations.
  • Check and/or add maxspeed and lanes tags. See Tips for more informations.

Imagery

  • For the imagery, you can use SPW(allonie) most recent aerial imagery. Be careful, there is an offset with Bing imagery. You can use imagery_offset_db for JOSM to get already saved offset corrections.
  • Bing Imagery is less up-to-date

Underground Roads

Take care about underground roads in the center of the city. We should check the "layer" tag and be sure that road segments are correct (between underground and outdoor).

Tips

  • You can use JOSM filters to concentrate on roads.
  • Use the wiki page about road convention in Belgium to tag highways correctly (link: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_Belgium/Conventions/Highways).
  • For lane tagging, refer to the wiki page : http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:lanes. In JOSM, you can use the plugin turnlanes-tagging (graphic help to edit lanes).
  • More informations on slowroads tagging on Belgium osm wiki (link: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_Belgium/Conventions/Slowroads).
  • More informations on cycleway tagging on Belgium osm wiki (link: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_Belgium/Conventions/Cycleways).

Have fun!
