[Talk-scotland] Glasgow Commonwealth Games Venues Mapping

I was thinking it would be good to get all the commonwealth games
venues and the surroundings mapped in the next couple of months.
Especially as the Main Commonwealth Games website uses OSM for the map
of venues!

I have put together a wiki page with the venues and an estimate of
progress https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Glasgow/2014CommonwealthGames

Most of the existing venues are reasonably well mapped, and some of
the new venues, like the Velodrome is mapped, but Tollcross Leisure
Centre is still shown with a construction site around it.

The main areas needing work are the Athletes' Village and new Hockey
Centre. This will probably need a mapping party as much of the
infrastructure is not shown on bing/OS.

Other venues could do with a tidy-up, and adding surrounding details
to generally improve the map.

I am busy through most of May, but perhaps if we can pencil something
in for June to get the Athletes' Village sorted out. What are people's

Cheers, Doanld
