About 50% of those in the list in my Cheshire patch are one housing estates
which are still under construction. I tend to update these about once every
three months or so.

 

Cheers

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%7C5f43e39d0d

8660533805&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?

 

Thanks,

Oisin
