A new openstreetmapper always find editing the data for the first time difficult. While OSM has improve a lot in terms of usability, simple editing techniques like splitting ways, uploading GPS tracks and, tagging seems to be a daunting task for a newbie.
This issue sprung up once again in the talk-ph list. In the past, I participated on several how-to sessions to demonstrate simple techniques to edit the data. We are now planning to do this regularly.
I am adding other videos as well.
My plan is to prepare a series of short and simple videos that demonstrate 1 or 2 editing technique. It is not as comprehensive as the other videos available in the OSM wiki. My goal is to simply demonstrate one editing technique in less than 5 minutes.
I will add more in the future. If you have any suggestion or request, just post a comment in this entry.
Here’s one on, “Edit data using your uploaded GPS tracks”.
