I am one of the newcomers. I am not a GIS scientist & learnt on the job
and am relatively lightweight, however I know that I am perfectly
capable of making a contribution but the (HOT)OSM process is not clear:
As is mentioned in several previous posts*, there is a lack of guidance
I have spent most of this morning not contributing because I have been
trying to find out what to do & how to do it. I am not stupid and if I
have missed a link to instructions, then how many other (willing to
learn) people have? As part of the strategy to maintain quality, surely
the signposts to learning should be given great prominence & be unmissable?
Are the aims of disaster mapping different to those of other mapping ?
In an non-emergency one can spend some time trying to work out what a
feature's properties are. Also, for example, how to interpret from poor
imagery say a path or track is it suitable for vehicles etc, or whether
to even include it.
>/ As a lot of people get to know HOT/OSM for the first time during
