Hi Nicolas,

When you say you are mapping estates, do you mapping them into OSM?

Do you use the task manager?

Hi !
Following up the idea on "Missing map London", I remember that someone
mentioned the Housing Estates. I would be interested to work on that issue
if others want too.
I am participating this week to a workshop at the ICA where we map London
estates under regeneration. We have 250 at the moment. There will be an
exhibition this week-end if you are interested.

Best summer wishes !
