Experiment Description


In this study, we evaluate the classification of objects of the OpenStreetMap data set.

What is OpenStreetMap (OSM) ?


OpenStreetMap is a collaborative mapping project. The aim of OpenStreetMap is to develop a free editable map of the world. Data is mostly collected by volunteers. For further information, please visit the OpenStreetMap website.

Experiment Description


We focus on entities labelled as "park","garden","meadow", and "grass". We check some entities of OpenStreetMap data with your help. Please tell us if you think that the presented entities appear to be a park, garden, meadow, grass, or something else related to those classes.

In the following we will introduce you to the guidelines of OpenStreetMap concerning "park", "garden","meadow", and "grass". Additionally, we will show you potentially related classes.

Please read the next pages carefully and try to rate the presented entities during the study according to the OpenStreetMap guidelines.

Class Description: Park


A park is an open, green area for recreation, usually municipal. These are outdoor areas, typically grassy/green areas, set aside of leisure and recreation. Typically open to the public, but may be fenced off.

Class Description: Garden


A garden is a distinguishable planned space, usually outdoors, set aside for the display, cultivation, and enjoyment of plants and other forms of nature. The most common form is known as a residential garden, such as the front or back garden. Residential gardens are typically designed at human scale, as they are most often intended for private use.
