No, it's not a mapping effort, just converting existing data. My
additional mapping will be placed on top of it :)

Massachusetts licenses all its data under an attribution license. This
means that I have more than 200 data layers as vectors which are
suitable for upload to OSM.

I also have something along the lines of 300,000 GPS points collected to
lay on top of the map once it's imported, so I can start adding the new
streets. But most of the effort here is definitely not mine.
