Is this something that could go in Survey Me?

Hi Everyone,

Our Open Maps team (https://github.com/microsoft/open-maps<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2Fmicrosoft%2Fopen-maps&data=02%7C01%7Cv-oiher%40microsoft.com%7C5f43e39d0d63417ee38408d68d2e9a4b%7C72f988bf86f141af91ab2d7cd011db47%7C1%7C0%7C636851628660533805&sdata=fQkRtSQ0jQaJ7s7fWg23NervMF7yX3SGJxEwANMTOIM%3D&reserved=0>) has been continuing to work on analyzing OSM in the UK.  Some of you may have seen my session in Milan where we talked about Microsoft’s ongoing OSM work in Australia.

We’ve created a list of the top 1500 streets in the UK that appear to be missing names along with the name that we suspect should be there. We are not 100% certain if our suspicious are correct and, not being local to these areas we are not remotely trying to fill these in. If there are folks that know these areas we could use your help closing these gaps.

The complete list is available here:


These are not major roads but they are associated with a large number of residential addresses so end up having a big impact.  We may also create a Maproulette challenge for these as well if that is preferable?
