In the couple of months that I’ve been using CityStrides, I’ve noticed a few inaccuracies in the map. Nothing major, but some nodes that are off. For example, there is one road that is blocked by a locked gate, but the last node in CityStrides is beyond the gate, meaning I’d have to jump a fence and trespass on government property to access it. In another case, a road ends in a dead end, but the last node is all the way up at the top of a person’s driveway. I’ve come across a couple of new roads that aren’t on CityStrides yet. And one other case where the road is misplaced, i.e. it’s 50 or 100 feet from where it actually is, meaning the nodes are hard to hit.
From reading some threads here, I’m trying to figure out if these are things I can fix myself. Should I be creating an account on OpenStreetMap and making these changes there myself? Obviously I haven’t done that yet, so I don’t know how. Is it easy enough for an idiot like me to figure out how to change a map?
