Just out of curiosity, how many folks spent some extra time mapping
over the holidays?
In my case I was off to visit family in Perth, ON, Canada. I did do
part of the town when I was in Perth last September, but now, the road
grid within Perth is (as far as I know) completed. Some of the street
names have been entered (I do have a few more names and features still
to add, hopefully over the next few days...). Does leave a major gap
between Perth and nearby Smiths Falls. Even though Smiths Falls is
larger than Perth (approx. 10,000 vs. 6,000 people), Smiths Falls has
a total of some 4 streets in Open Street Map. Also, of course a lot of
the rural roads around Perth are not yet entered... My time in Perth
was limited and I couldn't just go mapping... Still, good to see one
town more-or-less completed...
Small side note, when I was in Perth in September, I saw people were
building a small new housing development south of Lally Lane, but cars
were not allowed down the (modest length) street. So, I noted what I
could of the street, and left things at that. Now, three months later,
the street is open to traffic and is in OSM... Take that other maps
