[OSM-dev] question about add way to openstreetmap by GPX automatic

QGIS might have that kind of functionality, if not directly then possibily
by using plugins.

The advantage of adding the data to OSM is that you plant a seed and it's
very likely to grow, i.e. map data for your and those other cities actually
becomes available and will steadily be improved.

The disadvantage, of course is that it takes a fair bit of hard work and
precious time to get started.

Do you have coordinates for this city? If there happens to be imagery, it
may be possible to use the gpx files only as a complementary aid and then
you won't be needing all of them, just a subset.
