Please note the following: Most of these have already been drawn in OSM. If a line is already drawn, you may simply leave it unchanged and move on. Always check the satellite imagery to confirm what the MPO data indicates. If you're unsure about something please ask around. There's bound to be someone in the room familiar with existing conditions at the location you're looking at. * If you come across a situation that doesn't exactly fit the basic tagging that has been outlined, please find a knowledgeable OSM mapper to provide guidance.
A custom base map showing the MPO's path and trail data is available for use in iD by clicking the layers button and selecting "Custom". The URL is:
