Focusing mainly on areas I've mapped before, and some nearby blank spots
I mapped the entire town a long time ago, but have tweaked the roads here
and there, especially in the dense center, where higher buildings
sometimes took my track off the straight. Also done buildings there,
west/south. The buildings in the northeast are from 3dShapes.
Same as Zelzate. I mapped most of the eastern part of that area a long
time ago, but began to fill in the western part, which was pretty devoid
of roads in OSM. Also tweaked the residential landuse to the actual
position instead of the very low res Yahoo tracing I did.
Rieme was entirely missing, and Ertvelde only had some through roads.
Filled in the entire grid, and drew the residential landuse. Now I have to
go in and collect the road names! :) Also, some landuse to the north of
Spoorlijn 55/55A: no link, but goes from Gent to Terneuzen.
A few weeks ago, OSM still had the old track, running over where the
Kluizendok now is. I traced the entire (new) stretch from Gent to
Terneuzen, including all spurs and sidings. This was helped immensely due
to the higher resolution Bing photo's available along the Kanaal van Gent
naar Terneuzen. In those spots, I could even count the railroad ties!
My goals when bingifying, in general order: roads, residential landuse,
tracks/paths, other major landuse, minor landuse.
