Mapping alleys in Ierapetra

Today I was doing some mapping in Ierapetra, especially in its ancient quarter. Though I use an excellent GPS receiver, it is very difficult to map all those tiny, non rectangular alleys.

The GPS reception is poor, so you need to cope with zig-zagging position information. The result looks pleasing anyway, and I hope it’s not too far from reality.

Still a lot of work needs to be done, and I did not map the street names due to the lack of a greek input method on the tablet. There are additional keyboard layouts for the N810, but those do not contain a greek layout. Therefore there seems to be another hack to teach the N810 a greek layout, but frankly I was too much of a chicken and didn’t install it.
