Microsoft road detections

Continued from TIGER data quality:

The blog post announcing the detections came out last week but vanished for a while until today:

For what it’s worth, early reviews on OSMUS Slack seem to indicate a definition of “roads” that largely consists of driveways, alleys, and parking aisles in built-up areas – stuff that TIGER has plenty of in some counties but none of in other counties. This might not make for quite as exciting a headline, but it could still be a useful aid to finding things to map, especially in rapidly growing suburbs or areas outside the U.S. where mappers don’t have access to something like the annual TIGER roads overlay to work off of.
