New to the forum -- hello from Surrey
« on: 19:46:14, 24/04/20 »
Hello everyone! Iím David, and I live in Guilford, Surrey.

I probably wouldn't have discovered this site today following the recent spell of good weather, had it not been for the lockdowns (every cloud...).

I do a lot of my walks along rivers and exposed paths, but absolutely love walking along the coast.

I've also recently started a non-profit (timing has never been my strong point) with the aim of virtually mapping all the paths in the UK with the help of volunteer walkers. I won't mention it here, as I don't want this post to be misconstrued as an advert.

Welcome from Devon.


How does your project differ from https://www.openstreetmap.org/about?

Hi @ninthace, and thanks!

It doesn't differ -- we actually publish data (360 images) on top of Open Street Map with the aim of improving the map (and letting people explore virtually).

Without getting too techy for a Friday night, this includes adding accessibility data to Open Street Map by detecting stairs / steep gradients / uneven footpaths in the 360 photos we capture.
