I am trying to prepare a base map of road network of Cooch Behar District of West Bengal, India. I have been trying to download the OpenStreetMap (OSM) for the district but found that many roads are missing in the downloaded shapefile. I have also tried to download the same area from geofabrik and the issue remains the same. I saw when I downloaded the same from a small area all roads came but I need the complete road network shape file for the entire district.

I have decided to purchase the road network shapefile for the area but the cost is huge.

  • When you view this area in the OpenStreetmap website do you see the roads? If so, please describe in detail the steps that you performed to try and download them. If you are using the ArcGIS Editor for OpenStreetMap to do the download then that is a critical detail to include.
