Welcome to the Israel OSM Project & FAQ

This is the perfect place to talk about ..
- Locally specific OSM issues
- Organising mapping parties
- Mapping parties aftertalk
- And more


The Israel Wiki project page can give you a lot of information about the status of the project and how you can help to improve it.
Link: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_Israel

IRC channel: irc://irc.oftc.net/osm-il

Everybody is welcome to join and help to get Israels roads available free of charge for everybody.


FAQ:

- Why does Israel show up only in Hebrew? Can I change it to show only English or Arabic names instead ?

The OSM Israel tries to have whole Israel mapped mainly in two languages: Hebrew and English (Latin characters). Arabic is also existing at several places like Haifa.
So it's possible to show the country in several languages. Here a small list of examples:
Israel Map in English => http://toolserver.org/~osm/locale/en.ht … &layers=BT
Israel Map in Arabic => http://toolserver.org/~osm/locale/ar.ht … &layers=BT
Israel Map in Russian => http://toolserver.org/~osm/locale/ru.ht … &layers=BT
