We want to make it easy to extract features from precise, current satellite
imagery and add them to your map in iD.
Feature extraction has been a topic in GIS for decades, but has never been
intuitive enough to empower collaborative efforts like OpenStreetMap.
So we’re working on a simplified, smarter interface that makes extraction
as easy as the lasso tool in Photoshop. It works as a plugin for the iD editor,
and will also be reusable for other projects.
