I am more than happy to map footpaths. I have an up-to-date 1:25 000 map of 
the Isle of Wight so it would be fairly easy for me to find the footpaths 
and then map them.

However I don't want to start mapping somewhere to find it's being done by 
someone else. I also need to be able to get to and from places without any 
big hassles.

Having said that if the footpaths exist on out of copyright maps then they 
wouldn't need to be captured. Or would they? Am I right in assuming that 
only changes are being captured as opposed to everything? Are the out of 
copyright maps being digitised first?

As I have only just come across this, I don't know how it is all be 
organised and carried out.
