Well thread you have already started
Good to see you are actively involved in it. May be we can list down all the NH from India and track them in this thread. Do you have any other idea please do share?
One more point with NH mapping I was wondering if we could do something in maps which could shows where the conditions of roads is really bad.
You can really help the community. You travel more then anyone of us and with your GPS system can provide good data to map.
You can map real good road and highways. I am mapping south west Delhi, around Najafgarh, Dhansa and Nangloi Area. May be you can log into these areas and map few of the roads if you have some GPS data of these areas.
Lets make it more systematic and find mappers who will take care of the particular area in the following states or Union Territories. This will help to recognize all the mappers of the particular area and also mappers of particular state/area can help each other as well.
1) Andhra Pradesh 2) Kerala 3) Andaman & Nicobar 4)Assam 5)Madhya Pradesh 6)Arunachal Pradesh 7)Bihar 8)Maharashtra 9)Chandigarh
10) Chhattisgarh 11) Orissa 12)Dadra & Nagar Haveli 13)Delhi 14)Pondicherry 15)Daman & Diu 16) Goa 17) Punjab 18) Lakshadweep 19)Gujarat
20)Rajasthan 21) Manipur 22)Haryana 23) Tamil Nadu 24) Meghalaya 25)Himachal Pradesh 26) Uttar Pradesh 27) Mizoram 28)Jammu & Kashmir
29) Uttaranchal 30) Nagaland 31)Jharkhand 32) West Bengal 33) Sikkim 34)Karnataka 35)Tripura
Please assign yourself which area who want to take care of or send me names. We can also create a thread for each state, if enough mappers are found, where mappers can discuss their problems and also bring to everyone notice how much mapping has been done for their area.

Moderation is not a pleasant duty and the moderators will not read every topic, but -as in any community- not everyone will be able to contribute to the community in a positive way. So moderation is sometimes needed. If you think a topic is decending into personal attacks, religious or political offtopic discussions please report this using the "Report" link shown for each post. Do not feed the troll.
Please try to keep discussions on topic and positive.
Thank you all.
