[OSM-talk] SOTM delegates: Do a good deed while you're there

Hi folks,

Since I know that a lot of the SOTM delegates are on this list, please
excuse an exceptional intrustion of talk-ie into talk. I know that
SOTM isn't a mapping party and I know that spare moments surrounding
the conference are most productively spent over beers with other
mappers talking strategy rather than out gathering data. That said,
for any of you who are planning to arrive early or leave late, let me
offer the following thoughts:

Limerick is the gateway to County Clare. Clare is the home of the
Burren, Doolin, the Cliffs of Moher and a dozen other items of beauty
and tourist significance. So there is plenty of motivation to take a
drive around while you're here. It is also the home of some of the
very few (small) gaps in the Irish National Road network, or rather,
in the OSM coverage of the network. So if anybody is planning of being
a tourist while here, make sure to log while you do it, and feel very
free to go driving in the areas identified as missing at:


(Particularly N18 Ennis bypass, N67 at Kilkee, both ends of the N68
and the Ennis end of the N85)

For those of you more drawn towards County Kerry, the precise routing
of the national network in Tralee town is also in need of a proper
survey. N21, N69, N70 and N86 all meet here in ways not yet properly

I hope to cover at least the N18 and Ennis elements of what's named above.

See you all at SOTM


PS: Although the Kilmurry Lodge is claiming to be sold out, I was
lucky enough to find a room today through ebookers - maybe they have
