The streets of Birmingham are all mapped now but there are still lots of things to do. If a project has sparked your interest just have a go at it! But do not forget to have a look at the Mappa Mercia wiki page. The coordination and collaboration of the projects is happening there.
Birmingham claims to have more canals than Venice. Most of the canals are already on the map. However there are plenty of features on and along the waterways that are still missing from map. Many locks, moorings, towpaths and access points are waiting to be mapped.this wiki page.
The Birmingham Civic Society erects Blue Plaques in the honour of famous Birmingham citizens. It would be really nice to have them all on the map. A list of all plaques can be found on the Society's website.
The map of the city centre already features many buildings. But there are more and those that are in the database can be improved. Have a go at your favourite landmark building!
Birmingham is covered with footpaths. Having them on the map would make it an invaluable tool for every walker and cyclist in Birmingham!
Many bus stops and bus routes still need to be added to the map. Have a look at the public transport map to see what can be done with public transport information in Openstreetmap.
If you want to use maps from OpenStreetMap on your sat nav you will want to have the turning restrictions for all junctions in the data. On this site you can find a map that shows the turning restrictions that are currently in the database. So, you can easily check (and, of course, add) the restrictions for your favourite junction!
Under the Freedom of Information Act the Royal Mail has provided OpenStreetMap with a list of all their postboxes. Sadly, the locations are quite inaccurate so that all postboxes still need to be located exactly before they can be placed on the map. The list from Royal Mail can be accessed on this website. It also shows which postboxes have already been located.
Powerlines are probably not the most exciting thing in the world (unless you touch them, of course!). However, they look nice on the map and it can be fun to find out which routes our electricity takes. Last but not least it is a great opportunity to get your compass out and take some old-school bearings (though you still need a GPS device to find out where you are since you don't yet know where the power pylon is).
Bromsgrove and Redditch are in great parts not yet mapped. This provides a great opportunity to go on some fully fledged mapping adventures. At the same time the size of both places makes the job look manageable!
Birmingham would not be what it is today without the Black Country. So, why stop at the motorway ring? The Black Country has many roads to be mapped!
