OpenStreetMap US

The Trails Stewardship Initiative is a project of OpenStreetMap US focused on improving OpenStreetMap trail data quality in support of responsible recreation. Pilot campaigns have shown the need to improve trail mapping workflows. OpenTrailMap is a prototype tool built to help mappers easily visualize and validate trail data. In the future, OpenTrailMap could close the loop between mappers and trail managers, allowing users to view, edit, download, and comment on OpenStreetMap trail data.
