Hi all,
I was lucky enough to get in contact with Alex Sims who is the local OSM contact for media here in SA.

I'm working on supporting one of our Public Transport Initiatives Open Trip Planning which uses OSM mapping data, and looking to the community for support to enhance the current mapping data available for metropolitan South Australia.

Currently we've identified that there are several areas of OSM which require tagging for pedestrian access, which impacts our open trip planning routing options.

*         Street Address Limitations ( missing streets and street numbers)

*         walking paths data not included across many of the highways (North East and Main North Gepps cross) connected to transport infrastructure, such as railway stations, and bus interchanges. Grange is a hot spot, as has been Aldinga, Blackwood and Belair, Mclaren vale ( which looks like its improving) and some areas around

*         Southern and Northern suburb areas not detailed

*         Smaller Shopping Centres, Councils and other places of interest not named.

I'd be very happy to help as I am also involved with the Government Open Data program at http://data.sa.gov.au/
I'm keen on building some good relationships with contributors and application developers so would like to gather some more support for OSM in South Australia.

Hope to hear from you all.

Kind Regards
