When saving your work, please leave the default comment but add what you actually mapped, for example "added buildings and a residential road".

General Instructions

Draw a line and label all the sidewalks in Edmonton as highway=footway


Advice from yaro of OSMCanada:

Ensure that sidewalks are connected to roadways

Avoid connecting sidewalks to anything else, like landuse, buildings, address interpolations

This is so that routing can be provided.


More information on how to map sidewalks here

If it is a shared used pathway (clear signs specifying shared use), add bicycle=yes

More information on bicycle and sidewalks here


If a crosswalk is present (click on the way (road)) and add a node as highway=crossing

Crosswalks that have no lights or markings should be additionally tagged as crossing=unmarked

More information on how to map crosswalks here

Unmarked crosswalk explanation

Does the sidewalk fit a small crowd?

Use highway=pedestrian
