I noticed that there is a bit of work going on with importing Park data. I know that's a broad subject, anything from Forest Service Roads to GPSed trails from vacations, hydrology imports and as always, fixing TIGER data… There's a bunch out there.

I wanted to get a feel for what, if any, work has been done for National Parks in the US. Is there anyone here (or an OSM wiki page perhaps) where folks are organizing to get Yosemite, the Grand Canyon and Rocky Mountain National Park mapped (to name a few ;))?

I am also looking to build out a Project of the Week (or Month) to do some concentrated effort in this direction. http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Project_of_the_week/Proposals#Date_Specific

I think it would be super cool to have our National Parks so well mapped it is the go-to resource for this summers  family road trips and outdoor adventures or the closer in hikes in the afternoon!

Any suggestions on where to look for other users interested in this, or free and open data import sites, all information will be helpful.

Thanks and happy mapping,

Hurricane Coast
