Yep, to echo what Clifford said - we don’t need to get the exact boundaries perfect. As long as a person editing around this area sees that there is something nearby, I am happy.
Because the project is really just a bunch of .geojson files, we can be flexible and update as often as needed. For comparison, here are the current Pacific Northwest community boundaries: Vancouver: https://github.com/osmlab/osm-community-index/blob/master/features/north-america/canada/vancouver_metro.geojson <https://github.com/osmlab/osm-community-index/blob/master/features/north-america/canada/vancouver_metro.geojson> Mt Vernon: https://github.com/osmlab/osm-community-index/blob/master/features/north-america/us/mt_vernon_wa.geojson <https://github.com/osmlab/osm-community-index/blob/master/features/north-america/us/mt_vernon_wa.geojson> Seattle: https://github.com/osmlab/osm-community-index/blob/master/features/north-america/us/seattle.geojson <https://github.com/osmlab/osm-community-index/blob/master/features/north-america/us/seattle.geojson> > On Apr 4, 2018, at 11:58 AM, Clifford Snow <cliff...@snowandsnow.us> wrote: > > Paul, > For this application having a well defined region isn't a big issue.
