OSM Data Coverage
Since we discussed in a previous post the importance of "power" relations in building the SciGRID model, a considerable number of new "power" relations were added to OpenStreetMap database.
Motivated by the increase in power relations coverage, we created this section to document the progress made in mapping "power" relations in OpenStreetMap and encourage more mappers to contribute to the power relation in OSM.
For this purpose, a slippy map displaying OpenStreetMap data and the SciGRID dataset, has been created. A snapshot of this map is shown below. It can be accessed using this link. The slippy map includes a layer of the substations along with information about their OSM ID, name, voltage, reference and oeprator tags. When a tag is missing, it is indicated as unknown.
