ReMapLima Drone aerial for Tracing in OpenStreetMap

Great news! The aerial photo shot with a Sensefly eBee drone, in the Jose Carlos Marietaguil area as part of the ReMap Lima project, is now available in OpenStreetMap for tracing. The areal is donated by Drone Adventures to the OpenStreetMap Community and is of very high resolution, "capturing multiple square miles down to zoom level 21 — plenty for street level mapping".
The imagery is hosted on Mapbox, allowing anyone to Log in as an editor and start mapping.

JCM area is currently unmapped and an area which goes through constant changes.  CASA, DPU and Community members from Lima, will soon be joining back to Lima towards the development of the online mapping platform.

Here is the link to start mapping:

JCM, Lima Peru

For new OSM users, note that you can create an account in OSM. To load the aerial on the online editor, add a Custom Background and paste:{zoom}/{x}/{y}.png

Drone Adventures released also four new UAV imagery layers of their recent deployments for tracing on OpenStreetMap. For more information please visit Alex Barth's blog.

  5. Drones are ideal for maping land from the air. One of the best models I know being used for this purpose is the DJI S1000 octocopter. It is unbelievably stable, and powerful enough to carry any kind of filming equipemnt you strap on it. If this si something that you are interested in, Isuggest checking out this S1000 review I found on the web:
