It's really been quite a long time without keeping in contact with the osm list(s), but osm activities have been taking place since February when i last posted here, about a mapping day at the Uganda Christian University in Mukono, where the availed imagery was used by the students to map features at thier University here. The imagery quite alligned with the gps tracks at 3meters accuracy, and it's the imagery that was mostly used.
We communicated with Andy Allan, as we were to map the new transportation network of pioneer easy buses operating in the capital city of Uganda Kampala, and some of the collected data can be clearly visible on the transport layer of osm, here too.
In April, when the OSM database was undergoing maintenance we had scheduled another mapping day on the same date as the database maintenance, with Kibo foundation in Uganda, so mapping never took place. More activities are to take place, and all updates (early or late) will be shared with the list. This is all in a drive to make OSM a usable map for every one, and also to provide freely accessible, accurate data that can be used for and by various organisations, individuals, and countries.
Just wondering could some one share all categories of information that can be mapped to osm?
