Hi dhyani,

This is yogesh, i've been doing a similar kind of work in *the Yadgir 
district *but marking all the public places like schools, anganawadis 
etc.,. in villages and towns here. I'm doing this using a gramin GPS 
device and with android smart-phones of colleagues with OSMTracker app 
in it. Then doing the mapping work with JOSM and QGIS. I'm also a 
beginner but enjoying it and doing this from last few weeks.

Good luck for your work.:-) Wish to see your work on Koppal in OSM..:-)
