First contribution 😁
Is it okay to just mark houses using Point..? There's so many, drawing the area shape for each doesn't seem worth it for now. #OpenStreetMap
@toro yay helping!
@toro join your local OSM Telegram group. They may help you with organising a club.
@nur Ohh I didn't know there are OSM Telegram groups! Do you know how I can find one?
@toro umm. Sure . Just tell me where do you live
@nur 😂 There isn't a page somewhere like on the Wiki?
@nur ...Interesting Does USA not have one?
@toro It'd be better if you can draw those shapes. Points aren't really ideal for denoting houses.
@dhanesh95 Okie dokie! Thank you!
Wait till you discover JOSM with the BuildingTools plugin
@aeroplain What's that?
Prepare to have your life changed.
@aeroplain Oh my gosh... EASY RECTANGLES
@toro Have you tried Mapillary or OpenStreetCam? There might be some imagery there?
If not, you can always physically go there, take your own Mapillary/OSC photos or write things down, and just map that way
@rory Ohh, I haven't heard of those! Thank you
@toro We've had this discussion in our community, and the consensus is that it's okay. We'd rather have nodes than badly traced buildings.
@GOwin That's good to know! It's been getting difficult keeping the motivation to draw accurate boxes (lol)
@toro There many good (and bad) reasons to use JOSM 😜 . Drawing building footprints with the buildings plugin makes this easy-peasy.
@GOwin That sounds awesome 😍 Once I figure out how to get it to start I'd probably use it all the time
@GOwin thank you!!
@toro Yes. With buildings, you can also specify the number of storeys, elevation and entrance gate. That's pretty cool IMO.
@dhanesh95 So cool!
