- Tracing Building Footprints in Hollywood, Florida #https://github.com/mapbox/mapping/issues/331 When saving your work, please leave the default comment but add what you actually mapped, for example "added buildings and a residential road".
This task is to create building footprints in Hollywood, Florida. Below are some instructions/guidelines/best practices to follow while doing this task:
- Try to trace the outline/footprint of the building accurately as per the satellite imagery available. Avoid tracing just a square building instead of the accurate footprint.
Orthogonalize shape(Shortcut button Q in JOSM) option to make the building footprints better looking.
- Avoid deleting the existing data/building footprints in your task. If you have to make changes and create a new object for an existing data, use
Replace Geometryoption (in JOSM) instead of deleting the older object. This will help retain the history of edits for a particular object.
- If there are no buildings to trace in your task, add a comment like
No buildings to traceand mark it as done. This will help speed things up while validating.
