I've made a couple of false starts on piste maps. I have an interest in this but I'm not actively "leading" the project as I have far too many other things that I'm also not doing.<br><br>Now would be a good time to get some fresh consensus on tagging as we approach the European ski season.
<br><br>Most maps are produced by the lift system operators and are copyrighted. They are not exactly very accurate anyway and in some cases you can't even tell which way is up (or down).<br><br>Riding straight down the leftmost and rightmost limit of each piste with a GPS strapped to your arm is by far the most enjoyable way of gathering data ;)

There's a few things in the wiki about making piste maps, but the<br>details seem to conflict on how things should be tagged etc. Does anyone<br>know who's leading this project and what's going on with it?<br>
<br>It would be good to try and get hold of some licence free maps to trace,<br>it would surely be in the resort operators interest. Don't european<br>countries have some more relaxed licensing on their map data?<br><br>
