Mapping the Millennium Expansion Project at Arlington National Cemetery

In honor of Memorial Day, I thought it would be a good idea to refresh the Arlington National Cemetery. It has already been mapped very well. However the Millennium Expansion Project has been underway for some time and could be added to OpenStreetMap.

Joining me was Edgar a fellow mapper from Mexico. We trekked across the entire cemetery and found on the west side that the unfinished construction project wasn't blocked from entry. We both fired up OSMTracker to grab a GPS trace. Both were uploaded to OSM for tracking with JOSM/Id.

We added 2 new roads, 12 paths, 1 stream, 1 bridge, and 11 columbariums!

Special thanks goes out to Digital Globe, who's new imagery supplemented our GPS traces.
