Contributing to the map

Here you can edit the map data, OpenStreetMap, which powers CycleStreets.

There are two golden rules to obey:

  1. You must not copy any information from other maps that are copyrighted - that includes Google Maps and Ordnance Survey maps for example
  2. Only enter things that are verifiable, i.e. that other people could confirm exists.

If you know what you're doing, find the place you want to start editing on the map and click on the 'edit' link when you're zoomed in far enough.
