snapshot of UCLA area on OSM (taken 2013-09-21)

OpenStreetMap (OSM) is a collaborative project to create a free (as in freedom) editable map for anyone to use and share. OSM map data is provided under an Open Database License, which promotes free use and redistribution of the data. More info on OSM.

You can help make OSM better by contributing to it your knowledge of the UCLA campus. See what UCLA currently looks like on OSM:

http://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=34.0688&mlon=-118.4457#map=15/34.0688/-118.4457

All the little details like bike racks, shops, parking lots, etc. make OSM an extremely valuable resource for newcomers and old-timers alike, so every little contribution is appreciated!

Map TODO list

  • construction zones can be filled in as areas (i.e. solid polygon) with this tag: landuse=construction

  • anywhere there is a bike pump, use a point with this tag: service:bicycle:pump=yes
  • sorority row??
