CycleStreets has obtained funding from from Cycling Scotland to enhance 
cycle journey planning in Scotland and to help motivate local community 
groups map their area.


This will include the creation of a user-friendly guide for local community 
groups which introduces OpenStreetMap, explains how we use it for cycle 
routing, how people can collect data, and importantly outline the key 
things that improve the quality of cycle routing. (We hope this guide will 
also be of wider use to the OpenStreetMap community elsewhere, too, even 
though it will of course be tailored for Scotland.)

We'll be asking round the OSM community soon for suggestions for content 
and for someone/people who can be commissioned to work on this guide.
