[Talk-us] LA part of the map essentially is unusable

I have a suggestion for a relatively quick method to get all the missing
roads back.  Sorry if this was mentioned already, but I haven't been
following this conversation that closely.

Would it work to do an import of TIGER 2011 data for most of the affected
area?  The TIGER 2011 data is much improved over the data from the original
TIGER import that took place several years ago, and it would be a great way
to get both the roads and the road names back on OSM.  It would be much less
tedious than having to re-draw and retrace everything, but we would have to
make sure that the roads would be connected to other roads at intersections,
and that we wouldn't be uploading any roads that are already there.  What
does everyone think of my idea?

so i have been running around the los angles area trying to rebuild the map.
and i have found the area in orange county along the 405 before i-5 is
completely gone. i would say the map has been reverted to its state about 3
years ago. anyone looking to map should start helping me out in that area.

Kthnxbye...
