OSM mapping in Malaysia ...

Hi all. A few of us have started mapping in Malaysia. I would really appreciate some expert eyes giving a once over on what we've done. I've been concentrating in Klang area here http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=3.036 … ers=B00FTF .

There are at least two other Mapping community forums in Malaysia, http://www.malsingmaps.com and http://www.malfreemaps.com , but they concentrate on mapping for Garmin compatible devices using GPSMapEdit MP source format.

I think this would be the best forum for us Malaysian mappers to discuss and coordinate our mapping. However, I'm not sure whether this is the correct sub-forum for it. Do point me to the correct one if I missed it. smile

Re: OSM mapping in Malaysia ...

Well If there is a lot of traffic we may even justify a Users:Malaysia sub-forum ... 8-)

Have been a bit addicted to playing with OSM this week:

* I've uploaded my tracks for Bukit Meru & Taman Meru (http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=4.654 … rs=0B00FTF) up in Ipoh but they look very lonely right now. I will be going there for the Raya hols so hopefully will at least be able to join it to the NS highway.
* I notice the NS highway after rawang has a "FIXME" tag. Is this due to it just being a single track? I will try and track both ways  if I can keep to middle lane all the way.
* Have also been uploading a bits and pieces of bukit rahman putra.
* Did quite a bit of stuff for SS1, PJ.
* Just did some of the major roads joining Sprint, Seksyen 16, Seksyen 14, SS2 and Seksyen 22.

Regards,

Re: OSM mapping in Malaysia ...

Hi feiming

You may (or may not!) remember me from mfm forum. I'm quite new here too (about 3 months) and have been mapping Sungai Petani and Seberang Perai area.  Glad to see you here! 

You can look here for what nyem has defined for road classification
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Mala … ds_Tagging

The classification is not complete, but at least there is some thing to start you off.
   
For kampung roads,  there isn't any classification that resembles it.  For me, I use highway = living_street.  The reason - it has lesser routing priority compared to highway = residential and when Mapnik renders the roads, they are shown in light grey (visually and intuitively conveys the meaning of low priority roads).

Any tag you like is available in Potlatch.  Select the way.  If it already has a highway tag, then edit it to say living_street.  If it doesn't already have a highway tag, click the + sign in the bottom right, then enter highway as the key and living_street as the value.  But do check first that the road matches the description on the wiki for living streets:

Feel free to delete them. Just be careful and make sure they're entirely untagged.

You can use JOSM's validator plugin.

Re: OSM mapping in Malaysia ...

you can trace it using bing. But you need to tag source=Bing. (This is OSM policy) http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Bing … s_platform

Re: OSM mapping in Malaysia ...

Do you guys think you can fill your own community forum? And do you want one?

Re: OSM mapping in Malaysia ...

I have been mapping on and off around KL, Putrajaya and Bangi. My focus is on navigational utility i.e. for use with OSMand.

My way of editing is mainly using Bing map in josm, and then testing the route with routing plugin to ensure correct nodes linking, one-ways and direction.

I don't think we have many mappers in Malaysia for OSM but having our own sub-section might start to change that  smile

Re: OSM mapping in Malaysia ...

You could trawl through the contributions in the MSM and MFM forums for track logs. I'm sure the contributors there won't mind.
