#openstreetmap never stops impressing me!
In the area where I live, where there is almost no data on Google Maps (took 2 years for them to put our house on the map), OSM has lots of details, such as ski trails and football fields.
See image, comparing OSM to Google Maps:
The Geofabrik #OpenStreetMap hack weekend can't happen as normal because of corona, but maybe it can happne outdoors!
I just can't get over how great StreetComplete is. It looks fantastic, is incredibly easy to use, and actually makes it fun to contribute data about the Real World for the benefit of everyone.
If you run Android, be sure to give it a try: https://github.com/westnordost/StreetComplete#download #OpenStreetMap #StreetComplete
What's a good alternative to Google Forms? Something #FLOSS? Esp. for non-technical users?

Inspired by @rory (for the tag) and @email@example.com (for the first version of the map).
https://www.mapthepaths.org.uk/ is a project to add all the rights of way and permissive paths in England and Wales to OpenStreetMap, fully tagged.
It contains council data of paths that can be cross-referenced with current OSM data. Parts that are missing are then added to OSM by volunteers.
It's important to add these routes to the database! If you can contribute time drawing lines, it would be appreciated. I'm happy to help advise or get you started if you're new, and there's also the wider OSM community who are always happy to assist.
wow, look at the rich details of #OpenStreetMap in comparison to #GoogleMaps:
while Gmaps looks like a work with MS paint, OpenStreetMap shows you a full construction plan incl.lifts, ticket vending maching, public telephone, recycling container, rubbish bin and also so many many more shops in the building:
