- If you want to send me your GPS traces I will add them as time allows. Please send them to mhinch-ptrails (at) hinchfamily.com Please note that it may take me a few weeks to add your data. Also, I would greatly appreciate it if you sent me only traces for trails not already added to openstreetmaps.org, but ultimately I'll take anything.
If you want to add your traces directly to openstreetmaps.org, please go ahead!! My method is:
- GPX traces are collected from prior Philmont Treks and perhaps edited using other tools
- Use JOSM to "convert to data"
- simplify the track (Tools->Simplify)
- bring up "Bing sat" (at least) as underlying imagery
- check that the traces follow trails as seen (if possible) on Bing Maps, camps line up, ...
- do any final checking against Philmont maps
- tag trails as highway=path, camps as tourism=camp_site, other interesting points (e.g., B-24 wing) as tourism=viewpoint
- upload data to OSM
- amending the "Description" of each camp with more info: Program, trail/dry/staffed etc.
- locate and add new camps for 2014: Metcalf Station, Chase Canyon, Hawkeye Camp, plus the new Chase Canyon Turnaround
- add (new?) trail from Indian Writings to Chase Canyon Camp and on the the Chase Canyon Turnaround
