goal:

Get GPX traces of local bus routes.

I'm not quite comfortable enough with mapping to update the bus routes, but GPX traces would be good for others, right?

@lesbianhacker @Doudouosm
I know what you mean about bus routes in #OpenStreetMap, they're a little too complicated for me! Taking GPS traces can be good, but you'd have to make sure you document them, so people know it is a bus route, the number etc. If you're sitting on the bus taking a trace, you can add other bus related mapping, like where the bus stops are, does the stop have a shelter, bench, tactile paving, etc.

@lesbianhacker @Doudouosm Do you know about #Mapillary & #OpenStreetCam? It's #OSM's Google StreetVIew. If you're taking a GPS trace, why not take photos with them? It will record a GPS trace that's uploaded, but the photos will be very helpful to bus (& other) mappers!

@rory

I know about Mapillary, and I think I've heard of OpenStreetCam before. I've uploaded a GPX trace before, I used to map it.

I think I can embed images in that GPX trace, too? Not 100% sure.

I prefer to sign up for as few services as possible lol

@rory @lesbianhacker no, but you can add coords in your images
