Combined efforts with Bike Ottawa (https://bikeottawa.ca) "Citizens for Safe Cycling" we are going to be mapping the Cycling infrastructure in Ottawa using the OpenStreetMap Bike Ottawa Tagging Guide (https://github.com/osmottawa/OSM-Bike-Ottawa-Tagging-Guide). Also the local Ottawa community has been adding over 500K photos to Mapillary (https://www.mapillary.com/app/?focus=map&lat=45.38246685394097&lng=-75.70782040912577&z=11.827789431296184) & OpenStreetCam (http://openstreetcam.com/map/@45.39959505543277,-75.68438529968263,13z) which will be used as reference to map the cycling related features.
