>>> I've been tinkering with western section of Acadia National Park in Maine
> where I've often visited.
>
> This led me to the discover the NP Mapping page
> <https://www.nps.gov/npmap/tools/park-tiles/improve/> which explains how
> their database and OSM interface.
> I now add the hash tag #parktiles to my changesets.
>
> I read that it was ok for me to adjust the boarder of the park which are
> sloppy. I started by aligning a segment of the shore line with Bing and used that
> segment <http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/21793444> to replace the
> segment from the boarder relation
> <http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/162904033>.
>
> I set up routes for the trails so they now appear in  Waymarked Trails
> <http://hiking.waymarkedtrails.org/#routelist?map=13!44.3162!-68.3053>.
>
> There's still lot of work to do; in just this one section of the park
> there are 16 serious errors and 2,246 warnings according to the JOSM
> Validator. Many are due to old and duplicated imported data. Anyone want to
> help?
>
> I also found Chimani, <https://www.chimani.com/> a free app based on OSM
> that works off-line and has the content of a good sized guide book.
